I have been on a roll. I bought a flat v shaped blade that went straight to a hollow ground edge. At first I thought the weight was why I didn't like it, but it was the edge. It would shave hair with out a problem, and start on a tomato without a hitch. But as soon as it hit the blade face it would stop and want to wedge.
The hollow grind itself was badly done it looked like someone used a dremmel that left indentations. I think this was a idea of trying to be a guide so the food wouldn't stick. I got rid of the "indentations" thinking this would help in slicing, which it did. But now that I am gonna have a 18 year old kid try to make a saya for my work blade I was thinking of making this better.
so I am wondering how to change the edge of the blade. If creating a new bevel down to the edge would be the right thing. I have been looking here to see if there is anything written on this but have not found anything. Is there something someone can link so I can read about how to do this. I am sure I am not the first person to have this problem. hopefully I can post pics of what I mean.
