this guy wanted me to remove the recurve in the shallot and regrind it to a thin edge for him so it was flat... I basically used the same method although I used a belt sander for the major reprofile work.


this is what it looked like before:



after:

Well she wasn't all that happy. But with a promise of a new one made it all well. I'm wanting to do the mod I found online where you use the Bessey vaccuum clamp. It was 30 bucks at home depot.

I am terrible at sharpening this the reason I got the WE. I will admit that after years of struggle I'm happy.

Hello I am a new owner of a wicked edge pro pack 2. Well most of it anyhow. Somehow the base was shipped by itself and did not arrive with the other equipment. No worries as all I had to do was drill a couple holes in the wife's cutting board. I managed a crude edge on my Ka-Bar mk1 but I'm so anxious to have the complete set to start.

I've been drilling holes in people's cutting boards for a while, too!! When I go visiting.

My kids, my mother-in-law, friends we visit.... then, I don't have to haul my stone base, I can just hook on to their cutting board. Works great.

Welcome aboard.

Have fun. Bring your questions and answers...

gib, you need a panavise :D I have used mine for years and love it!

That's it! I'm out of things to sharpen at the moment. Guess I could reprofile the Esee's I have.

What you need to do is do a scrubbing motion in more of a sweeping motion or keep moving up and down the blade as you do this.

Josh,

Can you clarify this a little? Thanks!

np mark! so you are scrubbing in an up and down motion with full contact between your stone and the knife edge. Instead of staying in one spot and doing this motion, you need to:

1. move up and down the blade without staying in one spot too long
2. conduct a sweeping motion and on the return you are still keeping contact with the edge. You can "short stroke" this and not go all the way to the tip when you do it. This is what I was referring to. This will prevent staying in one spot too long and making that detent.

When using the panavise, where do you zero the angle cube to? On the blue base up against the vise?

Thanks
