If it were sharpened on whetstones correctly until the grind was completely polished, would it then become a flat grind, or a scandi grind.Umm, OK, didn't quite read that way to me but fair enough!
That was my reading of A.Wood's statement:If it were sharpened on whetstones correctly until the grind was completely polished, would it then become a flat grind, or a scandi grind.
To me, like I said, its a slightly hollow scandi grind and not a true flat scandi grind.
As far as 'Hollow Grind' goes, clearly this has particular connotations to particular people, but in this case I was merely referencing the maker's statements as well as what Mcnutt/Orford told me some 10 years ago....I decided that it would be best to supply the blades with a mild hollow grind similar to that produced when a knife is reground on a Tormek or similar machine. This would allow users much speedier sharpening sessions in the early stages when they werent so skilled or patient."
