sharpen of false edge

Post by wayneb »

Was just wondering how much work would be involved to sharpen the false edge on the Jaguar M4. Has any one ever done it how did it come out.

A sheathed dagger may be just fine, but the false edge on a folder shouldn't be sharpened due to the possible injury that could be incurred.

I agree with fishtail, especially with a balisong where the back edge of the blade can easily come in contact with the hand or finger while flipping.
