Peter Altenbach Chefs Knife 10" 3mm X45CrMoV15 ? 20 2k Chosera Bottom E Chopping and Slicing
 
Authors Comments:I've had this knife for over 24 years and have used it regularly. The steel isn't spectacular and really doesn't hold up well below 20 degrees. I like the shoulders polished and the edge just a little toothy. -Clay Allison

Protech Runt J4 2 inches 0.11 inches 154 CM ? Mfg angle of ~ 18 maintained ? Upper holes Butted to handle EDC
 
Authors Comments:Not a lot of blade here. Butted blade up against handle in vise. Tried to clamp with edge basically parallel and used upper holes. Factory bevels not quite equal on both sides, so started with 1000 and worked up thru ceramics in order.
