Blank has 'Biofibre' and when you look that up and the "technical" speil its yeh a little hard to believe.

Any steel with origins out of Seki city is head and shoulders over other steels, only have to research Seki city to understand why.

Re: Screwed up with some Cork Renew - help!

Instead of running sand paper over it and scratching it all up, just run one of those 3M scotch pads over the finish to the desired finish.

Re: spool bearing pin removal tool

A drop of oil where the pin intersects the main spool shaft (on each side) also helps the pin traverse it when being pushed out - nothing worse than sticky stainless on stainless galling.

A drop of oil certainly helps the reinstallation of the pin too and take load off the threads of the tool.

Re: Removing handle knob screws

While screwing check the bottom of the shaft - put a dot of marker pen on it and keep an eye on it to see if it moves in a circle.

Re: Removing handle knob screws

What your possibly doing now if thr screw isnt backing out is turning he actual knob shaft - the pressing has come loose at the bottom where it connects with the handle itself.

Needs a good centre punch.
