    Flat grind bevel angle?

    25 degrees is about perfect for sharpening. Keep it for that.

    Flat grind bevel angle?

    I forgot to mention I'm using 1.5" height material and the blade is probably 1.25" in height. Obviously 2" material would change the angle to something steeper.

    Flat grind bevel angle?

    It will depend on material thickness, height, and whether you are doing a high flat vs. full flat grind. That said you will probably be in the 4-5 degree range. At least that's where my 3/16" thick high flat ground knives fall. Like this one.

    So, Who's cross is it?

    Absolutely! Though the turnout may be low, even 1 life changed is worth it.

    So, Who's cross is it?

    Starting up

    Professional equipment and cheap don't belong in the same sentence. Are you planning to forge or do stock removal?

    154cm hunter.

    The makers mark is a bit crooked and not close enough to the ricasso for my taste, I'll be paying more attention next time. 20lpi checkering file for jimping. Sand blasted and polished to a matte finish with scotch brite. 1/4" flared lanyard tubing for "pins."

    154cm hunter.

    Something a bit different for me. A hunting knife for a friend. 154cm with olive drab micarta scales. I really need to upgrade from my Craftsman 2"x42" to step up my game to the next level. Oh well, one day...
