What model Spyderco and bladesteel was #6 knife?
I dont know that it's a real Spider(?)co ...
Got it a long time ago ( Decade ) ... Is it a clone ? Is a back door sale ? I can't say ....
I can say that with a regular edge ... Free hand fine stone ... It had little edge holding ..
Ceramic rod - Little in the way of edge holding ..
ANd when I got my guided knife sharpener = Little in the way of edge holding .
Wet Stone Grinder ( 220 grit wheel ) , better but not great ..
60 grit grinder wheel = Bonza Mate ! ( Good - Really Good )
Whats printed on the blade is CPM S30V with a top actuated liner lock .

Had really bad weather here , Rain N stuff !
Itching to put the Kershaw to the rope !

Kershaw Highball XL D2 (?) ? on D2 ...

We have a result ... @ 22 degree bevel ..
So previously we had a 220 grit wet stone cut edge @ 22 degrees for a 200 slice fail .
Now we have a 60 grit grinder wheel cut ( on my wet stone grinder machine ) 22 degree edge for a 300 slice fail .
So maintaining the angle of the bevel / edge saw a 50% increase ..
I might have to take the Kershaw into the angle testing as a disappointing knife .
Video soon .

So , I can ( we can ? ) extrapolate that 60 grit and a tighter bevel gives good results on knives that may have previously been disappointing with a more conventional edge . ( What would happen with a knife that tested well on a conventional edge ? - some other time )
Next I start on angle testing ...
