    Greg,

    I am not sure in which manner the video's were cited, but they don't demonstrate any inherent ability of a kerambit or a "properly made" sword. Meat is one of the simplest things to cut with...

    A mono line is cut much the same as wood is cut, it is just a continuous media so if you cut it on a push you would expect a higher polish to produce a lower force. Critical here is that the fine...

    Yes, you didn't think it would not be a problem and so it wasn't.

    There are slight differences due to the fact the Native is harder to grind and the angle is higher, but these are minor...

    There are a number of things which can go wrong, you can't go as fast as I went in that video until you can feel the edge on the stone and know when you are above the apex. If you actually hit the...

    The corners generate very high pressure under very light force. They will remove metal much faster than the flats, but they will also over stress the edge much easier. They are very useful if you can...

    If you use too much force and you stress the edge it can be very difficult to remove on the Sharpmaker, it is possible, but since the medium and fine rods are solid abrasives and don't break down and...

    There are only two options :

    -it isn't apexed
    -there is an apex but it has a prominent burr

    As a simple check :

    You are jumping grits and the apex isn't getting ground.

    "It seems to get caught when slicing"

    If properly finished, the blade will do that off of the 1k Shapton, likely even the 500.

    What you are describing is a side bias, the edge is folded over to one side. It is caused by a number of things, usually too much force is being used on the stones, they are too loaded, or one side...
