You should know that Bussekin knives come with obtuse edges from the factory. That's a well know fact. It's easier to remove metal than put it back. I'd much rather have an obtuse edge than one that's too thin for my use. Buses knives aren't typically for guys that are new to hard use knives. Along that line we should all be able to sharpen or re-profile them to our liking. If you aren't able to do it yourself, I'm sure you can find a shop that sharpens knives locally. Just ask them to thin the edge. Maybe even tell them the angle you want. If you still feel it's so terrible how about you post up some pics. We can't tell you if you are being reasonable or not if we can't see it. I bought one of those cheap 1" belt sanders from Harbor Freight. Gets the job done and was super cheap. Just get some different grit belts and practice on a few cheap knives first. You'll get the hang of it in no time.
