Hunting knife? I'm lost... Halp!
It also has two bevels that are different on either side of the spine.. looks like it might be for the sinewy parts of an animal or rope or something.
How to i sharpen a concave knife shape? I've read slip stones, and emery paper with dowel rods, and buffing wheels. though in the same post about the buffing wheels the guy mentioned that this will mess up the angle of the bevel after a while if you keep sharpening with a buffing wheel.
How would you go about fixing the tip? The last knife I fixed a tip on was a kitchen knife and I ground down the spine to the edge. This knife, unlike kitchen knives, has a pronounced convex shape slanting upwards on the spine of the knife, which makes me believe that I should grind from the edge to the spine; aka the opposite from what I do on kitchen knives.
What should I do about the bevels on the spine? Are they intended to be sharp? or somewhat blunt? I don't know it's purpose.
Also, does anyone recognize this knife?
