How long was everyone's shipping? It's been nearly a month and my knife hasn't even left the Netherlands.

Absurdly long in this day and age, when the "big river" company offers SAME DAY deliveries.

What are the benefits of a spear point shape?

In terms of folding knives, I think blade shape is preference. But for fixed blade knives spear points allow users to drill into wood with the tip because the point is in line with your wrist. Other than that I don’t see any other benefits.

A frame lock is when the lock bar, the piece of metal that actually keeps the knife from closing on your finger is part of the handle. It’s also called a Reeve integral lock.

There is no best way. Do you have stones and know how to use them? If not, you'll need to invest some time to learn or find a sharpener that doesn't have a night learning curve. I don't care for belt sharpeners like the Worksharp - they remove too much blade material imo. The Spyderco Sharpmaker or Gauntlet will work ok. Those are great for keeping a knife sharp. For steel like S35 they will take a long time to get it sharp if it's dull. So if you go that way do yourself a favor and keep the blade sharp. You may want to consider the diamond or CBN rods for the Sharpmaker for this steel. Some will say it's not necessary. It's very helpful to have a sharpener that's harder than the carbides in your steel. Those rods will give you a longer lasting edge and will sharpen this steel much faster. Stropping is fine for extending the life of your edge. Even with a strop you'll eventually need to sharpen. You can use a leather strop or any kind of strop with a compound. For this steel (S35VN) I would get some 1 or 3 micron diamond paste or spray. You can apply it to anything - leather, wood, cardboard - whatever. That will get you some cutting ability back and is cheap and easy to learn. Again, you can't strop forever and expect a good edge. At some point you'll need to sharpen if you use the knife. If you use something like the Sharpmaker and don't damage the edge you could be fine forever. That seems like a good way to go. I'm not sure if the Gauntlet is better or just different. I could go off the deep end and talk about what stones you need for S35, but this is already too long. Go do some reading. For now something like the Sharpmaker is probably your best option.
