    Have you considered taking up Knife Husbandry?

    Actually I ground one for practice today. Left .015 on the edge, kind of felt weird to leave this much metal on the edge, but per your advice, did just that.

    Ooops...
    confused the dates. Sending out the list for the drawing.

    Will have results momentarily.

    PS: I mentioned in a Scimitar thread post that I ground one just yesterday for practice to refresh my skill. I have a US made scimitar as a reference knife, and I have a some good input on a scimitar from pro users. I will combine that with personal preferences of the lottery winner.
