No question about it, this knife is "perfect."
A week or two ago I posted about my new manual folder, a custom Buck 112 with a bright red handle. This is one of the most solid, balanced folders I have ever held. At that time, we debated if the edge should be polished.
Well, I put the blade under a four-power, lighted loupe' and checked over the edge. Yeah, it was "utility sharp," but I wanted it 'perfect.'
For most of the morning (it's very stormy in my area) I inked, and re-ink the bevel, and using four Schwartz stones and some polishing paper I refined the edge. I didn't remove any noticeable metal (just a dirty mark on my shaping stone) and the edge is a scalpel.
Like I always say, call Joyce, she has the best stuff. No dings, blades arrive in two days.
