1. I understand what you are saying about not needing to hone the entire convex bevel, just the very edge, since the rest doesn’t touch the wood…but as long as i’m not really trying to get more than the very tip honed…I guess I don’t see how it is going to take any significantly more time. Re-grinding on low grits, or a wheel is going to be necessary occasionally no matter what method you use, as your micro-bevel gets bigger and bigger, right?

2. Are you saying He doesn’t hone the back at all? I guess I didn’t get that. I assumed even using the convex method, you would still take off the wire edge by honing the back. How can doing something different tot he bevel side have a different affect on the flat face?

(I’m not trying to argue…but you seem to know what you are talking about…I don’t understand why what your saying means this method is bad.)

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
