Benchmade 9500 Mini-Auto Stryker 2.9" .1" 154CM 58-60HRC 20 3.5um Top A.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:I've experimented with this knife many dozens of times over the years. My conclusion is that the steel won't hold well under 20 degrees. It's important to treat the blade in two sections to preserve the tanto geometry. I don't recommend a convex edge because of the loss of some of the precision cutting. It's an excellent EDC, especially for any utility work.

Authors Comments:Had to go with top position to get clearance for 15 deg. A.75 got the bevel pretty even, just a little more on the belly and tip, but looks good. Stropped with both balsa and leather at 15 deg.
