Nemesis No1

Nemesis No1 ( Navy K 628 Lock Back Knife ) (5 min 14 sec)

This Navy K-628 440c could not hold an edge , no mater how much I massaged the factory bevel .
I could get it shaving sharp , but the edge would vanish within 4 or 5 passes through cardboard ( it became a butter knife )
I seriously thought the knife had rubbish steel for a blade .

That was many , many years ago . The knife has been in a box , and labelled a basket case .
It was time to pull it out and put a known bevel on it ( 22deg @ 180 grit with a 400 grit clean up of the bur )

It has gone from basket case to performer with a change in the angle of the bevel . ( How many of my knives are afflicted with a bad factory bevel ? )

Nemesis No2 will be tested next .
