Default 50 cent score



8 inch chefs knife. Stainless forged. I have been lookin for a cheap knife to buy so i found this at a thrift store. Someone donated it so i took it. marked .50$ so why not. It was dull as none other and i didnt want to use my chefs choice sharpener on it. I plan on using this knife for EVERYTHING from vegies to bones. So using the chefs choice is not an option. dont want to wear it out. So, i took it to my bench grinder out in the garage. I put 20* angle or so on it. That thing is SHARP. cuts right throw bone and flesh. Never would have thought my bench grinder i use for the axe would do such a great job.

Im gonna see if i can buy an actual paper wheel and knife stone for the grinder

Don't go overboard on sharpening it. A knife like that will do veggies well even when not extra sharp. I'd use it for things that might possibly damage your good knife if you used it: meat with bones (like ribs), etc.

Use the good knife for the good meats.

If you do ruin it eventually, you've lost fifty cents. No biggie.

Search for John's (Patio Daddy) Kiwi knives thread. I got some darn good cleavers pretty cheap. They're excellent for chicken bones.

in a pinch, you can also use fine grit sandpaper to sharpen. i keep a couple of tri-stones around for mine.

left my book at the farm, but i would use a very fine grit sandpaper on a finished blade. i just use one of my norton tri-stones for maintenance

knifemakers, fwiw, often use large belt sanders to form/hone their blades
