Maybe I am going off topic a little,but this does concern a blades and steel.If so just let me know.
This place I have been landscaping was so out of control,Janice's uncle had the whole front yard,it is a large corner lot ripped up,put plastic sheets down & covered with gravel over a year ago.She was upset said it looked like a parking lot.I told her no worries I would make a Japanese rock garden.I got the rocks for free, just had to pay for transportation & placement on the gravel,I made 5 islands & planted Dwarf Mondo grass on each.I also have Mondo under a Orange tree in the back yard.The poss. for creative landscaping around the gravel is unlimited.
After about 8 mos.The mondo had grown in & looked great around the stone.When I put it in,I took my Macheti & punched holes in the plastic for drainage.After 10 or so mos. I noticed the tips of Mondo turning yellow,the backyard mondo was good.So I watered more & it did not help.Wt. a little research I found that it needs good drainage.So I pulled up the grass & sure enough H20 was pooled on the plastic in areas.
The plastic had to be shape cut,I was using my cold steel Bowie,cutting plastic hitting dirt & small rocks.It got too dull after 2 islands.The remaining 3 I did with my Spyderco M390.Of coarse it got dull as well,but not as fast as the cold steel.The tip worked great for tight corners & it never chipped even hitting small gravel & rocks.If this kind of miss use of a blade does not say something for the quality of M390 I don't what could.I do not know how it will perform as a kitchen knife time will tell when someone gets one.
I wasn't looking for a debate, I was genuinely interested to know your opinion.
