    I actually kind of hate my P380. It doesn't really put holes where I am it to.
    If you're wondering I'm probably being sarcastic.

    Most weapons are more accurate the the one pulling the trigger

    I was just reading an article a couple weeks ago about the benefits of that skew profile. It looks quite interesting!
    I've been trying to decide if I should re-profile my current skew to that, or buy a second one to try them out side by side, without wasting a ton of steel if I don't like it.
    Have you found any negatives to having that sweeping arc, rather than a straight angled skew?


    I wish I had a story about tools handed down from previous generations, but sadly, my father was never the handy type, and the only tool i have from my grandfather, despite the fact that he was a carpenter, is a horrifyingly dished, generic 2 sided sharpening stone.

    I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite of the ones I have. They all serve a purpose!

    Kavid-I still have and use a traditional straight-edged skew, especially where I need to get in tight. But I probably use the curved one 90% of the time.

    Interesting, thanks!
    I have 2 skews, one larger and one smaller... I suppose i could leave the small one straight for the tight cuts, and try the curve on the big one
    So many things to ponder, while still not finding any time to actually make things lately lol

    I’m hard pressed to pick a favourite tool. I have many and most of them have their time and place. I have multi tools and there is always one in my ditch bag. There is a compass in there too. It depends what went sideways and what I need to get done what needs getting done.

    While I'd posted the story about my dad's 6" ruler I really think that there are two tools that are a favorite of everyone.

    This one:

    And these:

    Without either of these/especially the first one no tool could be used. Just a thought.
