    that's actually not too bad - it wouldn't take me long to clean it up and convex it with a 220 grit belt followed by a scotch brite belt.
    or for that matter, you could redo the bevel with a coarse stone, then follow it with medium and fine.

    This little system works well for me :D the edge guide is a huge aid in keeping your DOA inline on longer blades :thumbsup: No way will it be as fast as a power sharpening system :D

    Yeah that's going to take some patienc if your going to use stones. That edge will have to be worked down past the deepest chip. That's a perfect candidate for a convex edge. Or the beginnings to a serrated Bk20:eek:

    One drawback to the worksharp sharpener is that you cant always sharpen the blade starting at the sharpening choil. The guide head doesn't allow the blade to reach the belt on some knives.

    Nothing worse than a tooth ache. Well, maybe an ear ache.
    Never the less, I’m sure most would agree that both suck!

    It actually doesn't, I tried it. The alcohol has a cooling effect, that made it hurt worse, haha. Funny thing is, it doesn't hurt at all when I'm moving around, doing something. When I sit still, it starts hurting again. It didn't hurt much at the cabin at first, but when it started raining, and I didn't do as much, it started in again.
    Toothache for sure, never had an earache in my life. Never had a bloody nose either.

    try chewing on a clove -- it's supposed to help numb things.
    or go to the local healthmart and buy some toothpicks soaked in clove oil.

    In other news, spent Friday and Saturday in San Antonio at the Texas Beekeepers Association Annual Convention. Sadly, did not see zz there...
    Did come home with a 3rd place ribbon for dark amber honey (pretty good for a state-wide honey show). Also entered 2 meads for the first time and both got first in class. One was a melomel (fruit mead), technically a cyser, made with apple cider and honey. The other a metheglin/melomel (spiced and fruit) with rosemary ginger and lime. I also was a mead judge and was recused from scoring in the two categories that I entered.
