Knife Sharpening Tool(s)/Method(s)
Could someone(s) tell me what the best way(s) to sharpen this knife would be?  I have a stone kit (Smith's SK2 2-Stone Sharpening Kit, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000B5JXU2?tag=stevrkirk-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B000B5JXU2&adid=15RJ7Z248M329JRQCEQG&) that I use for my pocket knives, but I feel like there must be a better method for a knife like this.  I'd appreciate any helpful input on this.  Thanks!

+Steve Kirkpatrick one think you don't want to do is remove the natural pitina (blackening of the blade) but rust can be removed safely. there are many ways to sharpen your blade to get your desired result. but YOU are the one that has to find the one that works for you.

November Sweepstakes

Did anyone else participate in November Sweepstakes this past weekend (or the CW contest earlier this month)?  

My wife and I join some friends and operate as a team under WN3N.  We did alright this year, but came 1 section (NL) short of a clean sweep this year.  We had a great time though and ate way too much great food!

How'd it go for any of you, if you participated?

I enjoy chasing DXpeditions and often will try to work them on multiple modes when they're operating.  Contests though?  I just can't find an interest in them.  Not sure why other than they're very competitive (as they should be expected to be) and I'm not a competitive person at all.  That's just me.  So no, I think the last time I ever participated in contest event of any sort was a couple of times I went on Field Day with a club I was a member of back in the late 70's.  I was WB9TKA at the time.

Anyone else notice that post from people you don't follow, don't share communities with, and post that aren't "What's Hot" are creeping into your main feed?  It's happening for me and I don't like it at all.  I thought Google+ allowed me to control what I wanted to see and what I wanted other people to see.  Now I see what Google thinks I want to see (or maybe what they want me to see)...

Unless it's "What's Hot" posts that aren't labeled as such anymore...
