Alright so now that I have had the new consume hh with me at work for a couple of days I figured I would let you all know how it performed. OOTB it was very sharp and performed very well. Like many of you probably are I knew the knife had more to give with a different edge angle.
So OOTB my guess is it was 15-17 degrees, so I brought it down to 8 degrees per side. So far after approx. 4 hours of prep time the knife is holding pretty well. I am most likely going to bring it down to 9.5 or 10 the next sharpening session but the knife is performing great.
This being my first laser I was expecting something very tender and needed a lot of babying. I was either way wrong or I baby all my knives?! This knife even being a "higher hardness" knife is holding up way better than I expected, even though I didn't know what to expect
Overall a beautiful knife and after I start up my stone collection the 270mm HH may be eyeing me down
we will see.
