    Does anyone know of any proffesional knife sharpeners in the Swindon area. I want to get my Leatherman sharpened and also want to get my SOG Seal Pup changed from a left handed cut to a right handed cut.

    And before you say, google wasn't helpful

    Learn to do it yourself. Ask your butcher to show you how.
     
  3. Please - apply to join the Army - not the RAF. You'd hate the RAF. Really. Please.
     
  4. Never knew you could have right or left handed cuts... ho hum.

    As for your leathermans, lakelands sell knife sharpeners.

    or buy a stone yourself.

    Bit of oil on it, and crack on.

    twin-grade carborundum oilstone in the vice, lashings of oil and patience. Then move onto a hand-held Arkansas stone. Finish off with a leather strop or the sole of a leather soled shoe. Should be sharp enough to shave with. Mine is!

    Lansky sharpning kit is best if you dont know what you are doing but a good whet stone is just as good if you know how to use it

    Ah yeah, thats the one. Anyway I was thinking if I laced my boots in a certain way would I be less likely to be seen by snipers?
