    I'm trying to recreate the original "double" bevel on a Mora I've abused. Its a single bevel currently, at 26 degrees per side. I'm using a WEPS.

    I *think* I'll use the current 26, and then open it up to 30 for the secondary angle, but any advice is most welcome.

    And I have to say - 14 knives in, the WEPS has really started to shine. And I'm liking D2 more and more!

    The Scandi grind on my Moras is just under 15 degrees - about 13 or 14 on each side. All of them came from the factory with just the single Scandi grind that goes all the way to the edge. So I usually do a second micro bevel at 15 with the Wicked Edge. At that point the Moras are ridiculously sharp and you can cut yourself on them very easily.
