Chaparral and UKPK with their thin blades are a pleasure to use, but my best slicers are flat convexed FFG’s. The shoulders of a V-bevel needs a lot of force to push through rigid material. A convex negate that to a large degree.
I have convexed a few: Military x3, PM2 x2, Stretch, Manix, Caly, Sage, etc. They are all exceptional slicers, comparable with the Nilakka. I maintain 30 deg incl micros.
Wow, those look great! Is this something you did by hand on a stone?
Thanks, these were freehand using DMT stones. I finished with an Edge Pro 120 coarse stone. It closely matches the factory finish. There must be better options but that’s what I had.
Favourites at the moment: Military 204P, Spydiechef, Sage 2, Pits, Heinnie UKPK, Native Cruwear, Chaparral Ti
