Mantra Magnification

Postby Sumdumguy » Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:47 pm

I found an old lighted magnifier of mine and started working on my sharpening game. Which, is ten times better thanks to the magnification!

Anyways! After sharpening a few blades, I turned the magnifier over to my Mantra 1. I have never sharpened it, other than a handful of passes across the fine triangles.
What I discovered is that, on one side the edge and micro bevel are normal and fine. On the otherside of the blade there is not really a micro bevel(very tiny). It's like the very edge of the blade is chisel ground.

The bevels are perfectly even all the way down each side, just one side is barely micro beveled. It does not seem to affect the sharpness at all, I didn't change it. It slices better than most any knife.
