    Just figured this out. I have some people asking me where it is. Glad I figured it out. Sorry if I caused a problem over at Busse. Nuts.

    I vividly recall that one! Sick. Just sick. I have been trying valiantly to hold off and not get a Last Rights. This certainly is no help!

    What is this grind called? I've seen it before.
    Also I'm guessing its purpose is to make it a better slicer yet it preserves tip strength for stabbing

    It's just a compound grind... hollow on the rear and flat at the tip and yes you have it exactly correct regarding strength!!

    The EU17 is done, other than the logo (and probably microbevel)! Full flat grind satin finish, polished convex edge blended into the flat grind.

    Hope to finish up the other 2 tomorrow Ron ;)

    EXACTLY what the doctor ordered! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Take your time, no hurries, because you know the saying: "We can't rush perfection"-- or the people who owe me for mowing their lawns, apparently :confused::p

    There's nobody who can grind to reveal every possible iota of utility in a blade like Josh.

    He looks at a factory Busse like Michelangelo looked at a chunk of marble-- he sees the masterpiece hidden inside.

    I'm lucky to have Josh as a friend and a professional contact. :)

    Could you put a hollow grind on a formerly factory full flat?

    Inquiring minds want to know!
