Clay,
I think the specs are fine, if not necessary! A good knife database should include all those specs you have listed.
I just added 4 of my new spydercos I just got.
The way I do is sharpen a knives and after I accumulate the specs and degrees on a couple, I then come on here and update the database.
I wouldn't change anything on it.

I'd tend to agree, the database is good as is. I need to go ahead and add my recents. I have been waiting to get some use on the blades before entering but I guess that can be added later if I try different angles/finishes.

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.
