I didn't find much in the custom search engine. I'm hoping to hear some options for texturing the flats of thin chef knives. I'm working with AEBL and 14C28N. I've seen someone use some kind of compressed air stippler, but I'm unfamiliar with it. I don't want a texture that will be difficult to clean of course. Maybe some kind of dremal tool, but I'll need to be able to achieve a reasonable polish. Any help is appreciated. I could be wrong but I feel without this texture, I'll need to fade the bevels into the flats before reaching the lower handle junction, and that will create a more convexed grind than I would prefer on these thin blades. I want to take one angle from the edge right up to the bottom of the handle junction uninterrupted, and then break into the textured flat.
