Protech Runt J4 2 inches 0.11 inches 154 CM ? Mfg angle of ~ 18 maintained ? Upper holes Butted to handle EDC
 
Authors Comments:Not a lot of blade here. Butted blade up against handle in vise. Tried to clamp with edge basically parallel and used upper holes. Factory bevels not quite equal on both sides, so started with 1000 and worked up thru ceramics in order.

Wusthof Classic 10" Slicer 10" .110 X50CrMo14 56-57 RHC 20 1k-1.6k Top C General purpose kitchen utility, cuts lots of vegg
 
Authors Comments:I'd love to go more acute than 20 degrees but the edge just won't hold long enough. I keep it just a little toothy to compensate and it performs well. This is my wife's favorite knife and she uses and abuses constantly.

ESEE ESEE-6 6.5 inches 3/16th inch 1095 cabon steel 57 20 degrees- frighteningly sharp ceramics and strops with 5 and 3.5 micron pastes, I do a lot of stropping with green paste day to day and so I get a convexing to this edge over time Top C survival/bushcraft, a good slicer in the kitchen
 
Authors Comments: all the ESEE knives are full flat-ground and the blades vary in thickness from the spine to the edge, so they are good slicers but hard to mount in the vise.
