I documented the entire process of sharpening this knife with the Chosera stones on my blog here: Sharpening Blog

It's a good tutorial on using the waterstones and on creating a convex edge with the sharpener.

Here are a couple of knives that I just finished for Arthur Lynn in preparation for the PKA Show this weekend in Denver:

I love his Damascus patterns.

What a super job you did on my knife Clay! And what an excellent site/forum you have developed my friend. The Choseras put a lovely polished edge on my ESEE-4! Now I wonder what the Shaptons will do on my Fallkniven TK2 and the PXL folder. I wait with bated breath mate.
BTW, I love your avatar! :lol:
Congratulations Clay

Warmest regards
Leo

Hey Leo,

Thanks for joining the forum! I have had a lot of fun working on your knives, all of which are beautiful pieces. I'm very excited to work on the Fallknievens. If I weren't doing all the documentation and micro-photography, I'd take them with me to the knife show this weekend to work on there.

The avatar photo was taken at a Christmas event at Old Bent's Fort. About a week or two before Christmas, visitors to the historic fort in La Junta, CO can go back in time 150 years to life at the seam between the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains. The fort was the only point of safety and supplies along the Santa Fe Trail between Missouri and Santa Fe. The reenactments for the Christmas celebration are so authentic and the all the volunteers are wonderful people putting their heart and souls into the event. We try to go every year with my mother and the kids and it's one of my favorite events of the year. So, that picture has special meaning for me.

I will look forward to the knives whenever you are ready Clay!
That picture made me chuckle because I used to have a hat like that when I lived in North Bay. It was so big that my little head seemed so miniscule. People used to smile when they would see me wearing it.
That annual celebration sounds great...people should remember and celebrate their history. Just dawned on me that we have something in common...My major in university was philosophy and and a minor in history and in particular Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. I believe philosophy was one of your majors too.
Good luck at the Blade show this week-end my friend.

Best regards
Leo

What I meant to say...I look forward to seeing how the Choseras and the Shaptons work on my Fallkniven blades. The 1095 steel of the two ESEE knives is one thing but the 3G powder super steel of the Fallknivens is something else altogether. It will be interesting to see what stroke count will be like putting an edge on that stuff. Better have a drink of Gatorade ready as you sharpen those babies! LOL!;)

Cheers CLay
