    Lol, I just figured you were tired of seeing it. I’ve posted pictures of it numerous times in the “what straight did you use today” section.
    Here it is again, sorry to keep you wanting. You are very patient. [​IMG]

    I will join in on this thread. I have had a soviet blade "Paketa" from the 1980s that I produced after an hour and a half, a small bevel but coudn't shave a hair for the life of me. I assumed it was a dud but after going through this thread, I realized Soviet steel may just be harder then anything else I have touched by several hand folds. So I have been grinding away at it for longer now and my little even bevels have exploded into a large wavy mess, however there is light at the end of the tunnel. One little spot on the heel is starting to shave real well. Will post picture when its done.

    Wow, first post, and it only took a year to do it. Welcome.
    As for the Paketa, and its wavy blade. Just use a 400-500 grit stone, to set a "Pre-Bevel". This will take a lot of the time consuming work out. Make sure you tape the spine, and keep a close eye on the tape. Use a medium pressure, and lighten up, towards the end. The lower grit stones will chew through the tape. Change the tape often, especially, before you hit the 3k plus stones.
    Hope this helps.
