Subject:
What angle C/B front edge

David Charlesworth
We have just had an excellent discussion about closeness of C/B setting but no one has referred to the angle honed and polished on the leading edge.

I'm sure the Japanese professors had this at about 70 or 80 degrees?

Does any one else?

Best wishes,
David
