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.

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.
