Buck Metro (759) 1" ? 420HC ? 17 1000# daniel, a few light cleanup passes with 5um leather See comments A.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:Clamp on the bottle opener ring, the aluminum body section will control depth. Align to A.5 and level out the little blade with the clamp as best you can! Works surprisingly well.

Kershaw Blur 3.3125" .125" ZDP-189 64HRC 17 1um Bottom. A.5 EDC (Every day carry)
 
Authors Comments:After several months of experimenting, I've settled on 17 degrees for this knife. It gives great performance and holds its edge well. I keep it pretty polished for show and sometimes it's a little too smooth for the work it does so I might put a slightly toothy, almost invisible micro-bevel on it.
