Hey Thanks Clay ! I don't mind at all if you use the pics. I'm learning how to polish the blades , but not up to the standards as some on here ... hint hint but I'm working on it.

I had a great time making snacks and taking photographs of this sharpened knife. Edge angle is 20 degrees per side, finished at .5 microns with diamonds on leather strops. Steel is AUS-8.

Here are a few of the mule from Farid, made of CPM REX 121:

The effect with the one above is really cool - it looks like there are big chunks missing from the blade. It's actually just the way the finger grooves come up to meet the edge and are reflected.

This last image isn't super impressive, but I like the look of it with the steel dust and soft reflection. This is just after the 600# diamond stones.
