  • PC Knife

    I have a guy who wants me to pc a knife he's making, question is do I pc the whole blade or would I mask off the blade edge and then pc?

    thanks

    Find out if he wants the entire knife PC or just the handle. You might be putting the cart before the horse. :P He may just want the handle, caps, and spine done.

          masking the edge would be difficult wouldn't it? The angle he (the client) chooses to sharpen it could vary.... Even if its a show piece, masking the edge would leave a sharp build up, wouldn't it? Is there a way to feather an edge like that with PC with-out sanding? I haven't had a chance to do any yet.... Still trying to get my plating worked out...

            Up front - I'm completely ignorant of custom knives, so this is just speculation. I doubt you would want PC too close to the edge because it would clog up and possibly ruin either your stone or steel when sharpening. Just an outside observation. I haven't sharpened a knife since my Boy Scout pocket knife.

                I would think you would want to coat it all the way. When being sharpedned, there is only a small area exposed to the stone. Once the coating is honed off, it shouldn't make a difference since there will only be a couple mils of powder touching the stone at any one time. I dabbled with custom blades and knives many moons ago, but never PC'd any.
