    Did anybody here end up at HAP40, or SG2, or ZDP189?

    I decided to "date" different inexpensive used knives and steels for a year before trying to find the perfect bride. Hence the Forgie. I want to learn how different steels feel on the stones.

    Thank you, everyone, for the generosity of your time and expertise! I love knives. I've had a set of Henkel 4 stars for about 35 yrs. Unfortunately they are still in perfect condition. I really want to dive head first into high carbon and super fine grain steels that are insanely sharpenable.

    That would be cool also but the balance point is about 7/8ths of an inch in front of the handle which is where I like to pinch the blade. Thank you!

    Did it make a big difference for you drsmp? Not just comfort but feel for the last inch of the tip of the blade?

    I would probably try a bench mounted dremel with a 1/2" round stone, stone, slow speed, water drip. But I'm just going to ease/smooth the shoulders of the spine and the back of the heel. Thanks everyone!!!

    Yes indeed! Got it! Yes, was thinking of putting a very slight belly forward in the back of the heel and then softening the edges of course. Is that called a choil ?
