I saw on another forum, BladeForums.com, that someone used the Gatco Guided Rod System to grind out serrations on a blade. So I decided to try it on my Wicked Edge. I picked a less expensive knife, Gerber, for my first try. I used the 50 grit diamond stone on the serrations and the rest of the blade for about 15 minutes then progressed through the stones to the 1000 grit, at a 20 degrees/per side bevel. It didn't take as long as I thought it would. Here are before and after photos. I think it turned out pretty good. What do you think?

Definitely shows the metal "crunchability" of the 50g stone! :-D

Beautiful! Caused in part by the fact that I don't like the knife :lol: .

Which is a prejudice, by the way. This video shows why ;) .

Best thing to happen to serrations in a long time. I never really understood why you would have a "Steak Knife" section on a folding knife? LOL

Well serrations definitely have their place.... For people that really use and abuse their knives and don't get them sharpened all that time, they work great when your blade is partially serrated. I don't happen to like them, but that is my personal preference :-) my favorite grit finish on the wicked Edge is 1k stock diamond. Nice and toothy :-)

Anyway, that looks real good!
