Knife Sharpening / Uneven bevel scratch Pattern
April 23, 2023, 04:47:00 PM
I am new to knife sharpening with the knife jig and it slipped when I got done to the heel of the blade on one side.  So I have a nice even bevel along the edge until I get to the heel.  At the heel, the scratch pattern is twice as wide.  I corrected the bevel, and tightened up the support, and the bevel looks great.  Except at the heal where I have the wider pattern.

I figured this can be sanded out but wanted to know if there are any tricks to use.  The wheel I started with was a 180 grit CBN.  I finished up with a 1000 CBN but still have these 180 scratches above the 1000 bevel. It's my own knife but it looks so bad.
