Kershaw Blur 3.3125" .125" ZDP-189 64HRC 17 1um Bottom. A.5 EDC (Every day carry)
 
Authors Comments:After several months of experimenting, I've settled on 17 degrees for this knife. It gives great performance and holds its edge well. I keep it pretty polished for show and sometimes it's a little too smooth for the work it does so I might put a slightly toothy, almost invisible micro-bevel on it.

KAI/Zero Tolerance 0560 3.75 0.157 Elmax 60-61 20 10K Choseras Bottom. B 0.25
 
Authors Comments:The 10K Chosera edge is not really functional (unless you want to cut single sheets of paper). But it looks great.

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.

Gerber Freeman Drop Point 3.5" .134" S30V 56-58RHC 20 3.5um Bottom A.5 Field Dressing, Skinning
 
Authors Comments:This is a stout knife but doesn't hold an edge like I'd expect from the steel. I initially tried it at 17 degrees but had to go back to 20 to get it to last for an elk or two.
