 Reviews & Edge Retention Tests   New For 2021
 

 

 EDGE TESTING  Has started ...

  

 This time around I am playing with a questionable origin 535 .

1) 1st time around was with the whetstone grinder edge and the result was 150  fail

2) 2nd time around , 180 grit diamond cut edge on the guided knife sharpener - 250 fail . The edge rolled I think around 150 . Which is why I don't care for the 17 degree bevel and much prefer the 22 degree bevel I usually do . But this is what we are doing for now . But still , call it where you like . It was a better edge than the grinder edge.

 

 

3) 400 grit edge - 150 fail .  Next will be a 800 grit dge .

 

 

 4) 800 grit edge - 200 fail , next will be a 3000 grit edge .

 

  

 Edge rolled again , I think it began rolling at 50 slices and became a problem at 100 slices . So obviously this steel just cant take a 17 degree edge ( 17x 2 sides = 34 degrees )

 

   I guess we do it all over again at 22 degrees and see what the difference is .
