Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

The factory edge of this Spyderco PM2 in S110V steel was barely shaving armhair on skinlevel, and according to my Tormek WM200 the edge angle was near 35 degrees inclusive. The old apex was removed by cutting several times straight into a silicon carbide stone, and then i used 4 different Paper Whee...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

A few weeks ago a knife collector asked me if i could sharpen the false edge on a Gerber Applegate Fairbairn folder. On this knife the blade is completely shrouded by the handle when closed, so there is no risk of injury while carrying it. The owner also wanted the new bevels to be a bit shiny. This...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

This brand new Endura ZDP-189 sadly had a less than optimal factory edge, and since this beautiful steel deserves better i reprofiled & sharpened it myself. Before sharpening. My guess is that these knives are belt sharpened and then have the burr stropped of on a buffer. On this knife however i...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

Some time ago i did this rather large Strider fixed blade for a Dutch forum member. According to my Tormek angle gauge the factory edge measured 50 to 55 degrees inclusive and it wasn't very sharp either. Grit progression: reprofiled on a standard Paper Wheel with 220 grit SiC, refined it a little w...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

A while ago i reprofiled & sharpened this Ontario Afghan Bush in (probably) 5160 steel for a Dutch forum member, who when he received it tested it quite rigorously to see how the the knife would hold up with it's new edge. The pictures show the knife with it's new edge measuring 35 degrees inclu...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

Custom Sponaugle 154CM droppoint hunter Loveless style from a Dutch forum member & professional hunter. The knife has been in use for some time, and it was kept more or less sharp by the owner with the help of a Spyderco Sharpmaker. However, due to the original edge angle being somewhat too larg...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

First i used a standard Paper Wheel with silicon carbide grit, followed by a second Paper Wheel with 15 micron diamond paste as well as a third Paper Wheel with 6 micron...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

Also an older one: a DPX Hest folder with D2 steel blade from a Dutch forum member. This one was reprofiled to an ever so slight convex edge of between 25 and 30 degrees inclusive on a standard Paper Wheel with silicon carbide grit, then refined on a second Paper Wheel with 15 micron diamond paste, ...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

An older one, a user custom Jens Anso from a Dutch knifeforum member after a tune-up by a Dutch knifemaker. Part of the tune-up was a two-step stonewash treatment of the RWL34 blade, which unavoidably also removed the original edge. I put on a new edge using a standard Paper Wheel with silicon carbi...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

Spyderco Paramilitary 2 in CTS-20CP steel. The previous owner tried to sharpen it on an Edge-Pro, which sadly resulted in quite uneven bevels, several chips along the edge, and a piece of unremoved burr. I removed the apex of the old edge by cutting a few times straight into a silicon carbide stone,...
