Yeah , my bad ! This was money poorly spent !
I purchased this knife some time ago and have sort of dreaded testing it ( proof it's rubbish )
Delusions aside , it was time to let reality slap me silly !

This knife is garbage ! HRC is 55/50 , which appears to be very common !
Butt !!! and it's a huge butt ! There is little in the way of edge holding to speak off !

Ok , a while back I purchased a 200mm x 25mm grinding wheel because for the life of me I could not find a wet stone grinder wheel .
The wheel is 60 grit , which is seriously course .
But ! It rips steel .

This knife was begging for a re grind ..
And rubbish steel can respond to a more course edge .. And I can't think of too many knives more rubbish than this one !
So it now wears a 60 grit wet stone grinder edge !
I have done 80 grit Diamond cut edges before , so this is not so much different .

Ok , the universe just got me a beauty !
I put the knife to the rope - Has a 20 degree 60 grit edge ! after being re ground !

Wait for it ...
Only a five hundred slice increase over the previous result ! That's right , I call it at five hundred and fifty slices .
It could probably keep going , but that hacksaw like blade is catching the paper .
Some stropping , and the edge is back ..

Question ? Is it the 20 degree bevel or is it the 60 grit edge ?
Im going to have to put that 60 grit edge on another disappointing knife and see what happens .
Video Soon ...
