Paul's excellent - both knowledgeable and pragmatically helpful. By that, I mean that he focuses on a very realistic approach for "normal" users like me. I really appreciate that. I've already sent him an email and will see what he comes back with before I attack it tomorrow.
If I do double bevel it (e.g. at 10/15), I think I understand it, but as a quick refresher:
1. Go thin on the angle (e.g. 10) to the point where you're not quite sharpening down to the very edge
2. A very small portion right at the edge is done at 15*
That's what I took from Chad's book. I might have misunderstood, so wanted to double check.
And yes, working lawyers (odd how we basically never use the word attorney up here...) do procrastinate...which is why I'm typing about knives instead of sending clients their bills. Priorities!
I'm so ready to retire...at the ripe old age of 33.
