    I like group #1, but group #2 sounds nice also. So put me down for both

    "Primary" has both meanings, so your glossary would be incomplete and incorrect if you only sited one definition.

    Primary: First in order of creation
    Primary: First in order of rank
    "Experience" is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    okay, the whole argument of primary being the first ground edge on a blade is easily defeatable. some people grind an edge and put a microbevel on it, but whats to say someone ground the cutting edge, then put a back edge on it for easier cutting? so it could really go either way. but id say the Primary is the cutting edge.

    I'm a #1 person. I feel this way because every pro sharpener in the US talks this way and this is where I picked it up. I then had it cemented by reading the first book on knife sharpening ever written - John Juranitch's "The Razor Edge Book of Sharpening" and then also Leonard Lee's (of Lee Valley fame) book "The Complete Guide to Sharpening" where they both cite the cutting edge as the primary bevel.

    It is interesting that for every one that uses the terms one way that there are another that uses it the other way.
    I'm with Hoss for what that is worth.
