Thread: Keeping an even bevel from tip to heel

  1. #11
    10-12 degrees was the lowest-really my goal was to thin the bevel then apply a primary cutting edge. It's a 70/30 (Pic is of the 70 front side). it seemed regardless of angle the uneven bevel would exist. Perhaps I am applying to much pressure on the sides of the stone rather than in the middle?

    May be your stone is dished.

    I thought it was a possibility-although I started with a DMT extra coarse which is how it all started.

    I'd bet my dollars to your doughnuts that you're just seeing inaccuracies in the grind. Doesn't seem like anything worrisome, just hard to get a perfectly even bevel on an imperfectly ground knife.

    Only on one knife makes me think it could be a grind issue. I have a similar hiccup in my Misono gyuto. Mine only happens when thinning, there is a low spot (over grind) by the heal, so the edge is fine (for now).

    I guess what I am saying is that it may not be your fault. And Welcome.

    You may verify with the magic marker trick at a very low angle. Use newspaper to not alter the finish.
    If it's really an overgrind, the ink won't get abraded in the low spot area. That's a good reason for a return.
