I've down plenty search's /reading maybe even too much to the point I have educated myself and then confused myself to all the info. lol I presently working with 1080 and 1095 steel in .125. , .187 and .250. thickness. I have got my primary bevels to a finished point (320 grit) and my secondary bevels at .040 or thickness of a dime before heat treat. 1) After heat treat and decarb I will have to regrind my entire bevel and achieve my final secondary(edge) bevel thickness before sharpening. 2) I'm not sure at what grit I regrind with after heat treat and at what final edge thickness im wanting to achieve. All my knives are a combination of (3)each EDC, Hunting, tactical, survival/woodsmen. 3) I'm not real sure at what my secondary bevels should be for each style of knife and I was anticipating using a 20° for all of them. 4) I'm also looking for what belt grit or stone grit procedure for final sharpening for just a good toothy paper cutting sharp and I'm not sure if any need to be razor/hair cutting sharp.
