I'm looking to do some re-profiling on my CCK cleaver to really see what kind of better cleaver to buy! I have a question though... what is the best way to go about doing this? If I am looking to take a decent amount of metal off... should I grind the blade perpendicular to the stone and then reform the edge? Or should I grind as if I'm sharpening and simply concentrate on a certain area for much longer and that will grind down the metal I don't want?
Thanks... the CCK has pretty soft steel, so I'm not too worried about it... I gave a thought (if I was going to do some serious reshaping) to actually cutting the metal into rough shape then reform the bevels that way, but I don't think I'm going to take that much metal off.
