Hi Farid, I was just wondering if you have had a chance to test your version of the knife yet? I know 10v has very good edge retention but how is it to sharpen and what angle do you recommend? Also I was wondering if you could tell us how the knife feels in hand? I was wondering if you were working with sweaty hands if that would affect your grip on the handle?
Sorry for so many questions
Please feel free to post more photo's
I am going to try and do some tests in a week time, I am not able to walk around much after my surgery two days ago but I am going to take a few days and recover then do some cutting with it, in the meantime please take a look at this youtube clip of me using a CPM-10v competition chopper I made some time back, I will have to say I do not recommend this kind of abuse as knives are the wrong tools to use to chop 5/8” round copper pipe with but I love to test my knives, also this chopper had a thick convex edge not what I call a competition edge which needs to be very thin.
The k2 feels very comfortable in the hand due to the fact it is long enough to accommodate large hands, also for sweaty hands it is also wide enough so it doesn’t twist in the hand. To what angle you can sharpen I cannot say because it can be subjective, here is what I would like to say on that subject, if you are only going to use it for light cutting you can go shallow on your final edge, I would recommend you try the standard edge and then try giving it a rolled edge like a convex edge, take it very fine and take your time polishing the final edge to a mirror finish.
I hope this helps you.
This CPM-10v test was back in 2010
