good move..
Always more than one way to skin a cat.

You will change the angle slightly by doing that though...

Not really, the blade remained in the same position, the only thing I did was flex the handle upward to reach the actual blade tail.;)

I see, you unlocked the handle and moved it. Interesting, I never thought...having had the same issue myself, that moving the handle would give any extra clearance.

I have a few Paramilitary 2 knives. I will have to check it out. It really stopped being a problem since I have had thicker stones, but it would be nice to be able to do for those jobs that are OK with the stock WEPS diamonds and ceramics.

Say hey, Jose,

I'm not quite clear about what you're suggesting. Are you changing the angle of the entire knife in the clamp? Since the stone is hitting the forward-most part of the finger choil, it's not clear in my mind how that would work. If you could clarify, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

John

John,

No, I'm not changing the angle at all. While the knife is set in the clamp and locked, I just unlock the knife handle and lift it up until I got the necessary clearance to reach the edge tail. It is like closing your knife but this time it is already locked in the clamp ready to be sharpen.

Thanks Jose, I'll give that a shot. The Para 2 is one of my favorite knives and the S30V takes an amazing edge, it's just that last little bit that's bugging me. :P

You are right. I just checked a couple of my PM 2 knives. The edge of the handle hits the Ricasso, or choil... the transition from the full thickness of the blade near the pivot where it transitions to the blade grind and bevel... before the diamond plate can reach that transition... Anyway I don't see where the handle position has anything to do with what I am seeing.
Jose, could you post pictures? Just to make sure we are talking about the same thing.
BTW this is the case with most of the Spyderco knives that I have sharpened.

Phil,
I will post some pictures as soon as I get back home. This week I'm traveling on business.

Phil,
I don't have a Para 2 with me, I had one and sold it before I got the WE. Later on I had that issue with the Spyderco Ambitious and I solved it by lifting the handle as I expressed before. On the Para 2 you don't have to lift the handle because it has enough clearance to reach the blade, but yes, the issue on how to reach that tail notch is a problem because the stones are to thin and the stone plastic edge is in the midle. Sorry about the confusion.
But if the edge is right into the handle as the Ambitious, that is how it worked for me.:ohmy:
