Re-ground Mora 2/0

I removed the single bevel on my Mora 2/0 (Mora 511 included for comparison):

I re-ground it by hand using the TASK Garden Hone, it took less than 30min, including a quick refinishing of the primary on the stones and a sharpening on a King 1k and Steelex/Woodstock 1k/6k, then Spyderco UF rod.

Nice job Jason. Do you prefer the convex grind to a flat grind?

Chum,
Not really. This was a proof-of-concept work. I wanted to see if I could get rid of the single bevel by hand. All my attempts to get a FFG by hand have all ended up convex. I like this zero-grind convex better than it was originally, but if I could get a FFG I would. Convex doesn't bother me, however. Neither do hollow grinds. I really like I full height hollow grind, like on my Ka-Bar Becker BK13. The single bevel isn't too bad either, if the stock is thin enough like the Mora 2/0 (2.5mm) or the even thinner 511 (2mm) I really don't notice it. It becomes noticeable with the Mora HighQ Robust at 3mm.

Chum,
I also tried to thin out my Wahoo Killer knife, and it also ended up convexed. The hollow grind was almost gone anyway, as it was my sharpening practice knife.

You can always get more Wahoo Killers to practice on smiling smiley

Chum,
Yes, I had a few of them at the time, but I gave them away. This is my last one. Nice knife.

Do you notice any difference in cutting performance or ease of sharpening?

I find it easier to just use a micro bevel or even just cut a new secondary into the bevel, rather than run a convex edge. You need a slightly different technique to sharpen the knife and keep the convex edge.
