    Nice tal.

    Interested to see a report on how it works for you in days to come.

    I call that blade shape a "sheeps foot" but it is sort of a sax blade shape, but more rounded also.

    Grab some coarse, medium and fine and very fine grit sand paper and place them on a flat surface or a mouse pad if your going for a more convex sharpening and get it to the kind of edge you want and you are in a good starting place.

    I have a farberware stanless paring knife I was given that I put a cross between a scandi and a convex edge on and it is a handy little knife. I have done a lot of whittling and such with it. Also food preparation and just common use tasks like sharpen a pencil or open a bag of chips.

    Thanks for sharing

    Nice! Very impressive. How does the paracord feel in your hands as you work it? Let us know how she works as you continue on with the bushcraft.

    If you look back through history, all of the knives used on the frontier were butcher/kitchen knives. There were no hunting/survival/bushcraft knives, a knife was used for cutting up game, or cutting fabric for rifle patches. Usually a small folding pocket knife was carried for whittling and carving. Tomahawks and axes were carried for processing wood.
