Looks great. Jeff, why have you gone to making a bunch of knives with that big single bevel? What are the advantages, or what am I not seeing?

Glad you like them.

The asymmetric bevel is nearly identical to the single bevel to zero that was standard on all of my knives. The ONLY difference between the asymmetric and symmetric bevels is the height of the bevel - one side of the blade is beveled higher than the other side of the blade. This single difference makes the knife much easier and faster to sharpen (especially in the field)because only one bevel is sharpened followed by honing both sides of the bevel. - same geometry, same high performance.

symmetric bevel

asymmetric bevel



Good question - thank you.

ps The differences can be seen here: http://www.bushmonkeyknives.com/Instruction.html

Jeff if you ever want to give up the knife business brother; you'd make one heck of a photographer. Your pictures amaze me with detail.
