Thread: Replacement EKA Swingblade Blade?

    Replacement EKA Swingblade Blade?

    I like my EKA knife but I find it doesn't really hold a good edge and I am wondering if there are any knifemakers that have made better quality replacement blades for anyone?
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    I sometimes have the same problem, especially after doing Reds, just give a good sharpen, then it's back to normal. There will be lots of advice on here provided more authoritive people than me, just watch and learn as they say

    Good Luck

    likewise i found mine dulled quickly, but using an oil stone and iron improved the edge on mine and i always carry a small sharpener in me pouch :-)

    PS i hope your well Patrick

    Try getting someone with good metal knowledge to harden and temper the existing blade again?????

    without doubt the best ad-hoc as well as regular stone is the top of a car window. just use it like a kitchen steel - blade edge facing the stroke... i kid you not - razor sharp and no faff.
