Questions on Micro bevels

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi guys. I have a question about microbevels for the sharpenning experts, as I want to give it a try.

I know it increases bevel thoughness once it dissipates tensions. Altough, Does it relevantly impacts cutting performance?

It must be used on both sides or can be used on one only, and what is the difference?

Also, what would be the microbevel angle as all my knifes are around 10 - 12º?

 

Best regards,

Daniel

In my opinion -and i'm not an expert- a micro bevel will not affect the cutting performance. But it will certainly help some delicate edges to avoid chipping. Here's a micro bevel i put in my Deba and almost all of my knives:

The purpose of a microbevel is to allow very thin edges that would barely hold without one. See here Jon Broida's video on applying a single microbevel.
