I would like to buy an inexpensive double bevel carbon knife to practice thinning and polishing on, preferably > 100mm and <$50.

Anyone have any tossers (besides Dao Vua)?

Thank you,
NKW


Purchased. Thanks to those who messaged.

How about a modified Munetoshi Ku 240? It has a big groove on the right side and has basically zero bevel. You probably won’t need to thin it any more, but it definitely has room to make a stone flat surface and for polishing.

The first is a single bevel though, but I think that's easier in terms that you don't need to polish two bevels.

Thank you for searching. I'd like practice doing both sides (since I want to get better at doing both sides on my normal knives). They're both out of budget with tax though.
I don't see better options (in white or blue) out there, maybe look into something made out of SK steel.

Was this an attempt at grinding in a hollow/S-grind to the Mune? How'd it go if so?
Yes and I basically got I wanted. S grind on the right side and slight convex grind on the left side. It cuts well. Just not as nonstick as I expected. Still good performer though.

Pallarès Solsona makes basic carbon knives, C60 @60Rc. Both sides come very convexed. Prices in Europe including our VAT are €20-40. Don't know about availability in the States.

I have couple of those Pallares Solsonas. Easy to sharpen and good value for the low price IMO.

Take a look for a used misono dragon. The steel is very good and with some thinning they become really good cutters
