I have this little neck knife in said steel. Am thinking a primary bevel of 18* , and a secondary of 20*.
Blade is about 2 inches long.

Thinking is a combination scalpel / last resort / survival sort of thing (worst case scenario, only thing you have).

Comments and suggestions please.

Thanks much

Is it a Zombie Neck Knife? :woohoo: I looked at their website... they have some nice looking knives. Post a pic if you can.

I'm always a... match what's on there first, and see how it does. But there's nothing wrong with your thinking. You might consider just 18 deg. without the microbevel and see how it does. (Easier to add a microbevel, than to remove it).

Either way should work though.

This one. www.bladehq.com/item--Brous-Blades-Tactical-Black-Silent--11008

I was thinking I'd seen that you'd done a D2 at 20/side, so I thought I might venture outside my normal
box, which is match what's there.

I did a D2 Benchmade at 15 deg./ side... it held up well, although the last time I checked it, under magnification, I could see some small chips. Didn't seem to effect performance, but they were there. That's why I thought you might want to try the 18 deg. first without the microbevel, it might perform well. (Not that I'm against microbevels... they're great for cleaning up and putting the final edge on a knife.)

Any idea what angle they come at?

I usually say "match what's there" as a starting point, because I'm hesitant to recommend an angle, especially on a knife I'm not personally familiar with... hate to see someone do a bunch of work on a knife, only to find out they don't like it, or it doesn't work well. It's easy, especially with the WE, to use this as a starting point, then drop down a few degrees if you want, to see how it performs, without grinding away a bunch of metal.

Keep us posted!
