Fantastic piece of equipment Glenn. The geometry of your blades may cut better if a slightly different grind angle is established though.
You should look up the American Bladesmith Society. Arkansas is knifemaking capitol of the world, and the ABS is an absolutely phenomenal resource for those who hand forge their knives. I can honestly say, no institution has influenced my craftsmanship as positively as the ABS. I still use the principles I learned through them on a daily basis and those who know what they teach will see the touch of excellence reflected in my work. I owe them a lot.
They occasionally have “hammer ins” where a Mastersmith or Journeyman Bladesmith will teach the fundamentals of blade smithing. If you have any opportunity to attend, I highly recommend it!
