I'll try to post some more pictures when I get to it.

When I had posted my blog the edge was basically 13 degrees on one side and 14.5 degrees on the other side. This was no problem: it shaved arm hair.

However, I wanted a truely symmetrical edge, so I have now put a symmetrical 15 degrees per side microbevel on the edge. It still shaves arm hair :cheer: .

In hindsight: if I have to maintain a fully convex knife again, I'll start with stropping only. If the edge is just a bit dull, that should be enough. However, as I wrote, the A1 had a small microchip, so in those cases you'll have to use the stones.

You've probably read it already, but here is a good article on finding the right position for your knife in the vise.

We've added some new fields to the database: Intent and Comments, thanks to BassLakeDan for the suggestion. We're still working on adding an image field. Please add in your knives to help build the knowledge base.
