Quote from: Ken S on October 28, 2015, 10:12:32 AMJan,Thank you for posting this useful visual aid.I came up with the 139mm length by noting the minimum and maximum distances with my three most commonly used kitchen knives, paring (with Tormek small knife tool in knife jig); slicer; and chef's knife. 139mm was around midpoint of the common part of the range, and allowed some room for grinding wheel diameter wear. I would encourage all of you to do these measurements for yourselves. It takes only a very few minutes, and will deepen your understanding of the process.Jan, I will print your drawing and incorporate it into my knife sharpening. Good work.Ken

Quote from: torr on July 10, 2020, 02:38:21 PMThank you for reply. No there is not much curve on it. Thing is that it was sharpened previously by different sharpener and I wanted to create as regular bevel as possible- because when it came to me, it did not have it.So this is why Im asking for some way how to make it.I asked about the way how Ken measured data because he mentioned he took it from his 3 standard knives, and I think that Global 16 is bigger than standard kitchen knife:-)BTW.Why not to use "imaginary line" ? Many thanks for help.Tomas
Quote from: torr on July 10, 2020, 03:10:43 PMthank you for answer.It is very helpful.I lift the handle. When I did pivot move, i was getting not equal bevel on the tip. Is there some hint for this kind of sharpening method movement?
