Denton, I bought one of the most slapped together knives I ever saw. The bevel was terrible, uneven and rippled in spots. However, I wanted to create the widest polished edge I had ever refined, so the knife got "The Full Monte."
I cannot relate how toasty a 10 degree edge can get! You cannot even touch it without it biting into your fingerprints. I hope the pictures tell the story.
