Cleaning some heavily fouled chokes on a recently acquired #12 U/O with as many nasty solvents as i could get my hands on at short notice. May as well sharpen a few knives between scrubs… A few glasses of JD to take the edge off in the process… Happy Days!
What sort of knife sharpener is that mate?
It’s the one that’s clamped in the blue vice, bottom left of the photo, @bentaz.
KME Precision Knife Sharpener System with gold series diamond hones.
What he said ^^^^^^
@Pogmahon Are they as good to use & fool proof as they’re meant to be?
Short answer is Yes. Most knife makers wont tell you what angle they set their edges at, i re profile all mine to 20 deg for the sake of simplicity… On a high carbon content blade like SV30 or similar, that can take and hour or 3 but once you have the edge to your liking it can deliver a devastatingly sharp knife… I have an Arkansas stone for mirror finish and to finish off carborundum paste on a leather strop… It literally puts a mirror finish on the edge and you can cut circles effortlessly in a sheet of paper. With the KME it’s repeatable and consistent.
Thanks mate, i’ve been looking for a good setup for a little while and they keep coming up along with the russian TSPROF k02, but i don’t really want to cough up 500usd for the russian one.
