Cold Steel Black Sable 4" .125" San Mai III 58 HRC 18 primary bevel, 19 degree micro bevel 1600# Top B.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:I originally created the bevels at 18 degrees and polished them to .5 microns before adding a micro-bevel at 19 degrees with the 1600# ceramic stones to give a mirrored bevel and slightly reduced shoulder while making the actual edge a little wider and giving it some micro teeth.

Cold Steel Master Tanto 6" .1875" VG1 San Mai III 56-58RHC 25 .5um Bottom B.5 Tactical
 
Authors Comments:I inherited this knife from my step father who carried it overseas for many years. It had been hand sharpened for years so it's hard to know what the original angle was. Reprofiling it took some time but it finished up nicely and took a super polish.
