What Is Your EDC Edge Angle?
November 07, 2019 08:44PM
For my EDC use, I try to go as low as I can. I have had micro-chipping issues with D2 and 154CM at 10*DPS/20* Inclusive, so I run steels with carbide volumes in the low to mid-teens at 15*DPS/30* Inclusive. 10*DPS/20* Inclusive or lower seems to be what I like.

I've been doing 15ยบ per side for a long time now, no rolling issues and still decently able to cut.

Luisknivacc,
I think that 15* DPS is a were knife performance starts. I don't see any advantage in the work I have done to use a 20* DPS edge. That being said, most of my work is light.

15 degrees per side on most EDC's. Sometimes I'll run thinner to test an odd steel, like 10 DPS.
