    I have numerous pairs of sth and they are all like that. Cracked afd plates are sometimes caused by corrosive blue locktite. Call Salomon and they will send you a replacement for free.

    Jono, actually I like that example very much. That makes more sense to me. Like I said, I wear a helmet all the time...I was just never 100% sure 'why?' It still doesn't change the fact that helmet...

    I get your point as well although I don't see how math can have it's merit exhausted. My kids wear helmets because it's a better idea than not. There I said it. Anyhow, I think I am going to go...

    No. Like I said, I don't have proof of the standards testing criterion. I remember reading it in a helmet issue of powder mag a few years back. That's why in my earlier posts I said that I could be...

    I think the point missed is that all the vector and velocity math is irrelevant because hardly anybody skis at speeds within the threshold that wearing a helmet will assist in decelerating the brain...

    Exactly. The other really easy option is a leather stropping board. Takes less practice than a steel. Easier for fine edges.

    The steel definitely adds micro serrations but I call them chips. Knives over a certain Rockwell hardness should never be steeled and it's up for debate whether or not chipped blades provide a better...

    If you are using that Shun steel, that's probably why all your blades chipped. A steel is for straightening a prined edge. Even though the Shuns are stainless, I believe the VG10 is quite hard. If...

    Wouldn't be a warranty issue. All knives chip. Especially if you use a steel to 'sharpen' them. Steels are the worst thing for hard steel Japanese style blades. I don't even know why Kai includes one...

    That must be new then. When I ordered back in November they only offered standard STH variant hole patterns.

    Not to be a downer but I don't think the CAST plates work with the STH2 hole pattern anyway.

    You are calling me juvenile? That's a laugh. Anyhow, all I am saying is that even the average shitty skier travels much faster than today's current helmets are rated for. Yes, moving at 40mph...

    Dead is dead as far as I'm concerned and that's basically what helmet manufacturers are saying about their helmets, concussions and speeds over 15km/hr which incidentally is in the ballpark of 10...

    Exactly. It won't help. Helmets are for keeping your goggles fog-free when not on your face. They also guard against punters carrying skis in the parking lot.

    You'd have to slow down significantly. I thought I remember reading that even certified ski helmets were only tested to velocities up to 15km/hr. I could be wrong. I guess skiing way steeper...

    No, but considering your lack of mounting basics, keep your instructions simple. Take your skis into the shop and say this EXACTLY:

    "I want these mounted at 92cm from the tail. "
