Ok, so I had an old SRK in Carbon-V. I thought it took an edge easily, and had decent edge retention, but the thick and obtuse factory edge had terrible geometry for slicing. I liked the knife so I wanted to mod the edge geometry so I would be more likely to use it. I gave the knife a scandi grind and it became a very good slicer, but at the same time it lost its ability to chop and batton well. I Love the thick spine but thin convex on my BRKT Bravo-1 so I decided to try to put a saber/convex grind on my SRK and see what it would be like. I worked on it a little each day this week and just finished. I convexed the edge from the begining of the saber grind and finished it with a 9 micron lee valley grit and then stropped with green compound. It now slices in a similar manner to my Fallkniven S-1. Here is a pic of the knife before the final polishing.
