Gentlemen, I have a question.....In relation to the theoretically 90 degree intersection of the plunge line and the top edge of the bevel, what exactly causes this to become a curved intersection rather than a sharp 90 degree angle? I am still learning to grind properly, that being said, I have found that if I use more of the belt edge at the plunge line while slightly angling the blade tip towards my body, I can create a sharper more distinct angle. However, I have also found that if I am not careful and slow while doing this I can gouge the bevel surface fairly easily. To note, I am using a Norton blaze ceramic 36g to cut my preliminary bevels....would a J-Flex belt be more helpful in this situation?
Also, I have got maybe 1/16" of belt or less hanging over the edge when doing this.
Is this the correct technique? What could I be doing wrong? What am I missing?
