So, as I begin my descent—with these two new Spydies—into the rabbit-hole of complexly-curved edges (ones neither just convex or concave, nor ones only Spyderedged), I need to improve my vocabulary.
Case in point. The Ulize has a waist where the Dodo has a belly, and the Ulize has a belly where the Dodo has a waist.
What terms do we use to distinguish these edges from each other?
What opinions have you on the advantages of one edge over the other (or indeed over more standard edges)?
And what cautions would you offer regarding their sharpening?
EDIT (now endlessly to make a resource): “Google is my friend”: viewtopic.php?t=76708
. But, then, I would not have been able to show my new Spydies
or ask my other questions.
I hasten to add that I’m hardly the first to go down this rabbit-hole. From it some years ago emerged enough members here to form “The Cult of the Curved Ones”.
