I've carried the hissatsu folder on duty for seven years and after I reground the edge it is a stabby sharp knife! My +1 on James Williams designs!
Ok, interested in this, how did you regrind the edge? I carry the Hissatsu on duty and love it, just getting is sharp after I dulled it has been an issue, its sharp don't get me wrong but it isn't scary sharp like it was when new. I realize it is me not doing something right but...help?
I’ve got the same issue with my Hissatsu folder. I dulled it pretty bad at work It’s sharp but not as sharp as I would like. I’m looking at getting an angle guide to keep it at about 20 degrees and use a rougher grit stone to start. Then pretty fine, then hone and then maybe strop it as well.
All of my other blades I can get shaving sharp quickly but not this one. It is a bit frustrating. It is still very pointy/stabby and the front half of the blade is almost where I want it, it’s the back half I’m really having trouble with and I don’t want to have to take it to someone to get me squared away.
