    Convexity comes from inconsistency in the precise angle at which the edge is being ground and all free-handers are going to have varying amounts of inconsistency. More pressure would give you more...

    I did almost everything on a belt-grinder. I did use a stone periodically to evaluate the grind, keep track of any warping issues, and to get the edge profile smooth.

    I would second going for a "laser" type knife. The thicker the knife, the sooner it will require thinning. Unless you're more experienced than your post count suggests, and you have an adequate set...

    I would probably just rotate slightly as Jon suggests. I'd also consciously avoid using the tip unless it's necessary. That way you're utilizing your whole edge and not just wearing your tip out....

    You're clearly not hitting the edge. If you want to stick with that angle, then just continue grinding away until you feel the edge just start to fold over on the opposite side from the one you're...

    I use whole eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and some maple syrup. On the bread, I avoid anything crumbly. I always pre-toast the bread before dipping. How much I let it soak, depends on personal preference...

    That choil shot is disturbing. Surely it thins out quickly toward the tip, no?

    I've had one of those little cheapie grinders for a couple of years now and ground six knives from blanks on it, in total. After grinding a 330 mm suji on it, I've decided I'm either retiring from...

    It can be. On the other hand, I've found that quite a few knives that I thought were just okay at one point, are actually really nice to use. Sometimes it just takes a bit of getting to know your...

    Oh, chili is nice. I like to serve with finely diced onion, avocado, fresh tomato (or anything else I find sitting around that might work). I also like to crumble tortilla chips into it.

    IIRC, these stones were a serviceable, inexpensive option for a higher grit stone but they are very slow cutting and very hard, thus not great for knives (or anything IMO). I think they are more...

    I can't remember if I've used AUS-8. VG10 can be very nice as can 440C but I would say VG10 can give superior performance, in general. The longer I'm around here, the more I realize, it's more about...
