During the last millennia, Chuck sent me a box of knives. One of them is the folder pictured below. He identified it as one he carries EDC, and he told me I had polished it.
...then I looked at the edge...
Yikes, when the cutler perfected all four bevels my guess is that he wanted them of equal width. Oy, vey, some one was in the cooking sherry, because not one of Chuck's bevels matched the other three--and I inked them to make sure.
The bevels that were there were paper-thin in width and cut at a high angle. They were "utility sharp" at best.
I won't even mention the tip...
Using ink and a fairly new 140 Atoma it took me the better part of an hour to just to do the repairs. Now everything matches, the corner separating the bevels is crisp and defined and all of the glint marks on all four bevels are totally gone.
In truth, when I first saw this knife I thought "amateurish." Then I saw the polish. This knife has to go out fixed, even to the gaze and razor sharp. Period.
