Kershaw 1745 3 1/4 in. 1/8 in. 14C28N Unk. 17-18 deg. 2ndry with 20 deg. primary .625 Ceramic Top B EDC
 
Authors Comments:Had a rough 17-18 deg. edge on it... Lightly used the 1000g diamond to clean up the edge, then finished by going thru ceramics to the .625m. Came out very sharp, with a nice little bite to it.

Camillus 18671 3 in. .120 in. VG-10 Unk. 21 deg. 10m leather (just a light strop) Top A 1/2 EDC
 
Authors Comments:Blade has a "Carbonitride Titanium" coating, which the manufacturer claims makes it "10x harder". Anyway, my intent was to match the original bevel, but at 25 deg. I was still hitting near the shoulder, so decided to stop at 25. Blade came out sharp, but would probably benefit from a lower angle. 2/16/13 EDIT: I resharpened this knife, and when I set the bevel, it matched at 21 deg. I don't know why the difference from the previous 25 deg. but thought I'd document the difference.
