TOPIC: Acute angles on thick blade stock

Acute angles on thick blade stock 6 months 1 week ago #16159

I just wanted to show off a15° edge on a thick blade. It's a pile of reprofiling with the 50 grit stones but I think it looks pretty cool. I didn't think S30V was that hard until I spent six hours grinding it. I think I will take the strops to it down to 0.5 micron and really shine it up. I think it should be a good slicer.

Anyone else try this kind of thing?

Should I throw an 18 degree micro bevel on there?

I love my WE

I did the same thing to a Maxpedition Excelsa and I tell you, the D2 blade took even longer to grind and I didn't have to go as far. They seem to do a hell of a heat treat. I really only have D2 done by Benchmade to compare to though.

D2 steel is indeed very hard and takes a bit of work. Holds and edge really well too.

Thanks mister. I was also thinking that there isn't much that looks cooler than a Damascus blade a mirror polish on the secondary bevel. I just did one yesterday. I will post a picture.

I am just new to this online game. I typed in a google image search wicked edges, and man did I see some cool stuff. I am definitely going to try a convex edge on something I have that is thick. Would you guys recommend starting with the most accurate angle and going all the way to the apex with it, or would you recommend starting with the most obtuse angle? Would you guys recommend putting a micro bevel on a convex edge on a f thick blade?

There is actually a little more info on this site about convex edges. For some weird reason though the site is barely moving for me so this should get you started.

Have fun!!!
