Yep Bob, I remember this knife well. It's a shame the metal was so soft since you did such a fine job of getting nice bevels cut into it.

Thanks, Bob. Vey clear! I am going to try this soon on a recurved blade.

Do you happen to know whether a similar technique is used for free-hand sharpening of recurves (i.e. Use the corners a lot more)?

Have to admit, I'm terrible free hand, so haven't really tried working a recurve that way. As I learn more though I'm thinking of trying again. Maybe Ken or Tom have some suggestions on Free Hand and recurves?
