Hey all. I've been keeping an eye out for a new knife or two for general use around the kitchen. I've been watching for something old and broken in, made of carbon steel. I ran across these 3 Old Hickory knives for dirt cheap.

The blades are in decent condition, and the wood cleaned up to reveal some nice grain on the older two. Does anyone know what angle would be best to use on my Lansky for shapening these?

I know that carbon steel should be oiled after it's used and cleaned. If anyone has any other advise about the care or sharpening of these, please post.

What a cool set of working knives. I can recommend 25deg as a good start point, but a little closer to
22deg is what I would shoot for.

I've always been told " NO MORE " than 20 degrees and some people say 17 degrees is the optimum angle for kitchen knives.

Since you have 3 knives I might suggest a slightly different angle for each .... test them out and use the best angle that works for you.

What I do on kitchen knives is 25 degrees,pulling away from edge. Fine ceramic or leather to smooth any wiring. Seems to cut well for food and not as dangerous.

Yikes! A dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp one.
