Teacher…v v v v v v.

“I agree mate. Thumbs Up
I just want to be the one doing the “sharpening” or “reprofiling”. Wink.
Sounds like you have found a good method for achieving what you want in a good sharp blade. Beer”“

——————————-

Yes mate. 60plus yrs of practice and lots of cuts.

Eventually. You get there.

That tapered angle I almost get right. is a trick from some of the old Meatworks boners I worked with.

If you have a “folding” knife of any style.
It’s capable of coming back on your fingers.
Treat them as such, a folder. NOT a lock back and you’ll never have a problem.
They ALL only Finger nail cleaners and fruit peeler/slicers
anyway.
Serious work. Use sense and get out that FIXED blade you have.
You’ll keep your fingers longer that way. anyway.
Have fun.

The handle is plastic

What did you think it was going to be?

Plastic.

But just because a manufacturer says something is going to be made of plastic doesn't necessarily mean it will be.  ;)

And because it's my first knife with a plastic handle, I didn't know it was going to feel so cheap.

I wasn't expecting it to be an assisted-opener.

Nowhere in the description does it say anything like that.

They don't even say it's a "quick open" knife, as they do with some of their other knives.

The Gocomma knife with a 8.9cm D2 blade and a G10 handle dropped in price a little, so I snagged one!  :BEER:

I ordered this back on May 19th.

I just got an email from Gearbest stating that they still haven't shipped it, and I opted to wait until it's in stock.

This will probably be my favorite Gocomma knife, and I'm not fond of the waiting.

Okay, looks a bit like the Ganzo FH41 (except for the shape of the blade):

Unfortunately, Gearbest has increased their prices of FH21, FH41 and FH51 quite a bit.

 

On a side note: Interesting when you look at the link I posted in this post. It says "no lock" even though it uses a liner lock. Facepalm
