    hmm, your angle looks about 19 degrees per side average, maybe your clamp sucks :P hard to tell as the bevel seems to get steeper as it gets to the tip. mine is about 17-18 with a 20 - 21 degree micro, but i am (or used to be, im in an office now) hell on knives sometimes, I might drop mine to 15-16 dps back with a 18-19 dps micro at some stage, maybe a bit steeper , I cant be so certain on angles being a freehander but I think im pretty close

    The single eye in the reflection makes this photo a bit creepy Trav. The edge however is top notch as always.

    I have owned 3 different Umnumzaans, small sebbie 21, small micarta insingo, large micarta insingo, large 21, and seb 25. The two CRK's I kept are my seb 25 and my small micarta 21. CRK fit and finish is second to none. Nit as rustic and tough as our Striders though. I office carry my small micarta 21 and my seb 25. If you haven't checked out CRK I recommend doing so!

    Traded the SMF for a Sebenza 21 and manix XL, I hope to like the sebenza, but have 2 backup trades for either a ZT0560CBCF or a Umnumzaan if I dont like it

    *** Posted earlier on various other forums ***

    A niece of mine is an avid amateur Chef (but not yet a knife afi), and this black ceramic knife (a rebranded Kyocera) is one of her favorites in the kitchen, as due to the tougher blade material the edges can be made thinner and thus the knife cuts better than a white ceramic version.
    Longtime use however (not always on a suitable cutting board) plus storing it unprotected in a drawer between a bunch of steel bladed knives had blunted the edge to a point next to unusable, complete with quite a lot of (micro) chips and a broken tip.

    This is the knife as it was when i received it.
    (when you click the pictures 2 x you can see the chips clearly)





    This is the knife after sharpening.
    I reprofiled the rather bad factory edge to an ever so slight convex edge of +/- 25 degrees inclusive, and the sharpness is just hairwhittling (only towards the root, not to the point)
    It easily slices single layer toiletpaper (torn apart 3-layered version) and a tomato of course.







    Specs:

    Overall length: 11.0 inch (28,0 cm)
    Blade length: 5.8 inch (14,8 cm)
    Blade thickness: 1,84 mm
    Blade type: black ceramic / saber-hollow
    Thickness behind the edge: 0,4 mm

    A black (HIP) blade is made out of a black zirconium oxide and offers extra durability.
    This type of blade goes through an extra firing process called a "hot-isostatic press," creating a tighter weave between the ceramic molecules, thus creating a tougher blade.
    The white ceramic blade is also made out of zirconium oxide, but does not go through this expensive sintering process.

    Nice work. It seems scary to me sharpening a ceramic knife. I need to try it some time.

    Your camera, judging by the reflection, looks like my Canon SX200.

    Did you use diamond stones to reprofile that zirc?

    Removing the chips and setting the new bevel was done with a Tormek T7 fitted with an SB-250 Black Silicon stone, refining & convexing with a Paper Wheel coated with 15 micron diamond compound, and semi-polishing with a second Paper Wheel coated with 6 micron diamond compound.

    I gotta be honest, I wasn't very impressed until I caught that it's ceramic. That's pretty awesome. I bet that thing holds that edge for a loooong time.

    Time will tell how long it will hold this sharpness (did some testing with it):



    Also cut some toilet paper with it:
