Re: in for a penny, in for a pound

David Weaver
you should be able to get your knife to do that, assuming it's k390, unless the buffer actually beats the edge right off of the knife (it's hard to tell without looking through a microscope).

with knives, you have to be a little more sparing on the buffing since you're doing it on both sides. IF it's around 10 degrees per side, try buffing across the corner of the wheel rather than on the front of it. A couple of passes, then test on a hair, and then again, and so on.

Some of the high wear steels don't seem to buff the same shape as the faster wearing steels.
