    Fantastic. How are the cut outs done? laser or wire cut.

    KMTs have a LOT of precut blanks in their shop. Its been cut by laser probaly to speedup cutting time and waste less material. A friend of mine tried making a fixed blade knife with a KMTs precut blank with the animals on. It cracked through at the thinnest point. On the biltong cutters there's a lot more blade material so it won't be a problem.

    As a total ignoramus when it comes to making and SHARPENING knives - (So take it from whence it comes):

    What and how is the best way from all aspects (sharpness, least damage to the cutting edge) to sharpen a good quality kitchen knife.

    1. Smooth blade
    2. Serrated or "toothed" blade

    I sharpen SWAMBO's kitchen knives of all types on an oil stone.
    If really bad I first use a fine sandpaper (wet type as used in the automotive industry, like 1 000 + grit) then finish off on the oilstone to get the sharper cutting surface.

    It does not always work out so well. What am I doing wrong ?
    What are the correct ways, what are the "tricks" to not damage the blade but to get max lasting sharpness.

    I do realize that you would need to start with a good quality knife, but let's speak of a "middle range, average" kitchen knife that one would buy from a retail outlet available to the average joe.
    OR maybe in another way, a basic Swiss pocket knife in a different context?

    Same question:
    How to sharpen effectively without damaging the knife's integrity.


    On a much more gross level:
    How to sharpen a Marchetti ? I'm guessing that the same basics apply ?
