 Post subject: uneven bevel at tip

Just got a edge pro and let me say that I am getting some amazing results. I have a couple of questions concerning the bevel at the tip of my knives. I sharpen mostly edc and the bevel at the last quarter of an inch or so towards the tip is wider than at the middle. I set the angle with the sharpie at the middle of the blade and for some reason the tip sharpens a little wider. Not a big deal but if possible I would like the grind the same through out the length of the blade. I'm thinking that maybe I should set the stone to the angle at the tip first. How do I keep the same bevel the whole length? On the knives that I have already sharpened is there a way to fix the bevel?

As the stone arm swings you will see the bevel size change with the azimuth. Right in line with the pivot is where the bevel angle is at a minimum. You can see the bevel angle getting more acute from the tip to the heel, and on the other side it gets more acute from the heel to the tip. It may be possible to align the blade on the table to minimize that effect (belly of the knife further towards you?) but that might be more painful than it's worth.

Cheers,

Rick

Also, if memory serves, the analysis performed by Lagrangian indicates this error zeroes out at a 30deg bevel angle.

As the knife gets thicker towards the tip the bevel gets larger. Do what Rick said to minimize the effect , but knives with less distal taper will always do this.

Personally I like it :)
