CAW,
Please don't be so hard on yourself. Without your post, many of us would probably never know that this product existed. As for myself, I was only able to find the VHB designation because my Google search offere it up as a alternative search!

Have a great day and thanks once again, Mike

FWIW, I've just been using the cheap white foam double sided tape (not removing the side facing the knife) that you get at a grocery store (no particular brand). Seems to work great for me, and I use very thin strips (say 3/16").

That's the same stuff I'm using (Scotch Brand - made by 3M) and it works great. We have a lot of the VBH here, used to bond the diamond stones to the paddles, awesome stuff depending on which formulation you get but WAY too sticky to be used that way, too much work to peel it off the jaws afterward.

That hasn't been a problem for me at all. The 3M VHB, 1" wide and .045" thick cut an 1/8" long or so and going across the jaw at the top comes off quite easily. It will most often come off on the blade and then just roll an edge and come right off in one piece. I put the ones that haven't stuck to themselves on the base and reuse. When this material compresses it gets out of the way at a point, but is also firm in the void areas. tightening so the jaws are parallel assures the jaw tips are equal. A variety of resilient materials will work as well.

As of this morning, the webmaster is starting to create a Knife Wiki for that purpose. The idea is that users can log in and add their knives so it's constantly growing.

Any update on this? It's a great idea for new WE users. I would imagine that seasoned users get to the point where they can set up knives by eye. Anyway, if plans for the Knife Wiki fall through, I would be more than willing to collect, compile, update and post such a settings DB (probably best in pdf format sorted by knife make/model. Thoughts?

I've found that by using a small piece of upholstery leather works great. Cut a small rectangular strip of the leather, place the blade into the "pocket" of the rough side of the lether and place knife in the clamp. The "finished" or glossy side of the leather along with the blade held between the "rough" sides provides a strong hold when clamped. You can also double the thickness of the leather for FFG. Works like a charm for me so far and the blade is protected from any scrapes.
