Kershaw Leek 1660BR 2.825 .09 Sandvik 14C28N unk 17 .6 ceramics top A EDC backup
 
Authors Comments:nice knife for an office enviroment (not too threatning) seems to hold the edge pretty well with minimal touching up so far. Haven't used it for anything heavy duty yet, though.

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.

Authors Comments:1st time w/ M390 steel. Slightly lowered factory bevel and cleaned up the edge (came with a very rough finish). See how it holds up at this angle.
