I have a few that I haven't entered yet myself. I think the data base is fine. I put "?" For the specs I can't find.

Another plus to the knife data base is it backs ups your personal settings (free "on the cloud"). Even though I am a computer nerd I haven't made my own personal spread sheet to recored my WE settings for each knife. I definitely will do this. But at the moment I am still using scraps of paper to record my settings.

Ultimately it would be great to see multiple entries for the same knife. I would like to see how others with the same knife as me sharpen it, angle, progression, stone choice, etc.

I guess I'm not the only one that finally got around to adding those I had notes on and hadn't added yet. I still have a slew of kitchen knives but I'm trying to find out what steel and hardness they are. They aren't very expensive but might serve to help give a baseline for what the steel will support as a working edge.
Particpant in finding out how sharp is sharp!

I just checked the database and 3-4 of mine are not there? How long does it take to enter? Am I doing something wrong? I may be hitting enter after the last field instead of "send" button? I get a red bar saying knife was successfully entered into the database.

Clay has it set up so he reviews all the entries before they're approved. Since he's been out of town (and I imagine the Christmas rush), he's probably behind.

Thanks Clay.

You way want the web master to change the red bar that comes up saying "Your knife was successfully added...." to something like, "Your knife was successfully added.......It will appear once approved by the web admin...." At least to avoid others asking same question.
