Just wanted to post pics of this crazy dagger I did for someone on the Wicked Edge... turned out beautiful! Took a while though... Finished on .5um strops. I had to put a crazy steep angle on it (something like 30-35*) due to the geometry of the dagger... technically it could be a scandi grind (due to the primary grind itself being about 20*) but I wasn't about to attempt that!! Anyway... here ya go.

Before:


After:




Wouldn't wanted to have attempted this on the belt sander or paper wheels, that's for sure!!

Wow! That's incredible! Beautiful job!

It didn't know the WEPS could even do that. Could you tell us a little bit more on how you did the recurves?

What a beautiful job you have done on that Kris blade - and great pics too! :cheer:
Did you find one location that where the stones would track for this blade, or did you do each luk individually? How long is the blade?

Not sure on these kind of steel Clay, sorry! Well, what I did was similar to what you described in the other thread Bob...I just used either one corner or both - on the diamonds all the way up. The stock diamonds really worked great for the recurved part! I was pleasantly surprised! I went from the 50 grit stock diamond up through the 1k. Then it was on to my curved ceramics ...the shine really started coming out on the 5k/10k choseras after the ceramics though. Oh, and Mark, I lapped the edges of my choseras slightly to take out any nicks and very slightly round the corners. This Kris blade didn't damage them at all. Then I went to the strops

There is a topic about WE in Ukrainian knife forum,I posted these pictures to illustrate the capabilities of WE and there was good amount of doubt, some were saying that there is no way such knife can be fastened securely in the clamp. Just curious how you did it

hey Taras, glad you asked. I should have posted pics of that. They would probably be right if i used the "conventional WEPS" wisdom of clamping the blade in the middle (i.e. the center between the tip and heel), however I had to think outside the box on this one. there is a flat part at the base of the blade (where the manufacturer, steel type, etc. is listed) that I actually clamped the vise onto. I then used the knife brace that came in the wicked edge kit to stabilize the tip. Additionally I used my straight razor mods that I had built to put the arm pivots out in front of the vise.... here is a link to what i'm talking about...
