Leo, you really should consider setting up a Wiki about the Wicked Edge (although a lot of it is general knife sharpening). I just read too many concisely formulated and very to the point posts lately among the large number of posts here :cheer: . <= the smiley is about the great posts, not ironic about the Wiki.

I think that Clay is thinking of doing that very thing. If I knew how to set up a Wiki I would do it. I will check.

Hi guys,
I am wanting to do that very thing, just as Leo said. I'm envisioning a matrix that lists Make, Model, Steel, Angle (maybe could even have space for primary and secondary bevels), Depth Settings, Alignment Mark, just like in the instruction set, but expanded to included a little more info about the knife. I'll need to talk to our webmaster about the technical side of setting up the Wiki online, but the matrix itself should be pretty easy to do.

Clay that would be very handy indeed. Will the Matrix be printable? And will I have to fight off any Agent Smiths?


How many applications will the average user get from a bottle of the diamond sprays?
Sometimes I ain't that sharp.

Hi all,
I've started a the matrix, still need to figure out how to publish it so that it's editable by all. Please have a look and share your feedback. You can download it here: Knife Wiki
