I'm sure this has come up before, but since search is down for non paying members I'll ask. Does any one know what the edge angle is for the Chive? Any suggestions as far as sharpening such a small knife with a recurve?

Thanks

40 degrees inclusive, I believe.

As for searching BF by non-paying users, keep this link handy. It searches BF only...

I use the Sharpmaker, it works well.
Because it has both flat and angle, you can start with the angle which is easy.
Then as you get used to the stroke, you will do well on the flats.

I did nip the point on my chive though.
