    Hahaha, no man...I started writing a comment and then got pulled away from my desk for a while. Came back and hit send and then realized you and Rick posted books clarifying the subject while I was gone.

    They do say its easier to remember something after being smacked over the head by it repeatedly...or is that the opposite? =p
    Ok, so, googling convex grinds...


    Grind


    Edge
    Is this correct?
    The overall shape of the blade itself would be the grind, and the cutting edge itself is the convex edge? I am still learning, and trying to be sure.

    Thanks for digging out the illustration. Yes, that's correct.

    i always call the edge that hits the food the primary, but otherwise that's correct to my mind.

    I'm sorry, but all this talk of convexity reminds me that:

    There once was a young man named Greene
    Who invented a sexual machine
    Both concave and convex
    It would fit either sex
    But oh, what a bastard to clean!

    We return you now to your regularly scheduled programming.

    Here's a Glossary I think you will find very helpful.

    And here's a brief treatment on the primary/secondary edge thing.

    Great questions, pinkbunny.

    The primary/secondary bevel discussion is largely a matter of semantics I suppose, but here's my take on it:

    The first bevel ground onto an edge is the primary bevel because...well, it's first. The second bevel logically, at least to me, is the secondary bevel. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the concept that if we sharpen a second bevel onto an existing edge we should call it the primary bevel and what was previously the primary bevel becomes the secondary bevel. Seems kinda counterintuitive to me.

    But maybe I've just read too many articles on sharpening woodworking tools.
