Authors Comments:Chisel Ground Tanto. I focused on the primary side nocking the burr off the back side down to 400 grit. After 400 grit I sharpened all the way down to 3.5 micron leather strops. Holds a great edge for a long time under normal daily use.

DPX Gear HEST 1.0 3.67 inches .197 inches D2 Tool Steel 58-59 21 degrees per side ceramics and strops 5 and 3.5 diamond paste Top B-1 Survival folder/EDC
 
Authors Comments: This has been a controversial knife. The model 1 in some cases had weaknesses but luckily for me my cop was fine. A very sturdy knife with a D-2 tool steel blade that sharpens up incredibly and retains the edge well. It is one of my EDC knives.

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.
