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.

Browning Kodiak FDT 3 Blade 3.25" .125" AUS-8 56-57 Skinner=20 Hide Blade=17 Skinner=3.5um Hide Blade=.25um Top A.5 Hunting, Field Dressing
 
Authors Comments:I've used this knife for over a decade to field dress hundreds of elk and have tinkered with a myriad of angles and finish levels. I finally settled on 20 degrees for the skinner with a moderately toothy finish of 3.5um and for a final bevel of 17 degrees for the hide blade with a polished finish of .25um. I relieved the shoulders on the hide blade down to 13 degrees and the added the micro-bevel. With continued stropping at 15 degrees, the edge is now nicely convex.

Cold Steel Black Sable 4" .125" San Mai III 58 HRC 18 primary bevel, 19 degree micro bevel 1600# Top B.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:I originally created the bevels at 18 degrees and polished them to .5 microns before adding a micro-bevel at 19 degrees with the 1600# ceramic stones to give a mirrored bevel and slightly reduced shoulder while making the actual edge a little wider and giving it some micro teeth.
