I made a donation to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and they sent me a Browning fixed blade as a token of appreciation. I was getting ready to sharpen it and noticed that in the directions that came with the knife showed it being sharpened at a 20 degree angle. I normally work my hunting knives at a 25 degree angle and my kitchen knives at 20. Any comments or observations? Have I been using the wrong angle on my hunting knives all these years?

Thanks for the article. It pretty much confirms what I know about sharpening angles on knives, according to their intended use. The little knife RMEF sent me is probably best reserved for skinning and a 20 degree angle should hold up well enough. I'll let my 25 degree knives continue to do the heavy lifting.

Thanks for the information, just didn't realize the importance of which angle to use for which knife.
