not that much later...the 26c3 *PIC*

David Weaver
as mentioned, 7 cubic inches of maple malleted off directly cross grain. This is a lot of wood to mallet off at once.

26c3 sharpened on a washita, unicorn on the bevel side (opposite side of the picture)

damage started about halfway through, but I made a mark to mallet to and decided to continue and see how bad it would get.

This is typical (there are areas slightly worse and then some areas clear - but strangely, entering into the cut no problem and no bounce like with a rolled edge). for scale, the depth of these nicks is about 2 thousandths.

Another length shown where there's little damage.

I did what I'd call a double length honing after this, it was about double as long as I'd go between sharpenings. fine india (no coarse grinding needed) and then re-do of the uni and all damage as gone.

The deepest notching was maybe twice as deep as the above picture, but taking a picture of the worst gives a false sense - above is more typical. These shallower nicks are still enough to leave a line on the work that you can see. The smaller nicks do not.
