I have been asked about making PM-V11 knifes, It is simple yet quite difficult,, I was reading rave reviews about PM-V11, so I purchased and cut up the largest plane blade that Lee Valley had at the time,, I have had lots of high dollar knifes from across the world, this is by far the best I have used. A benefit I have discovered is,,, instead of sharpening every time it starts to feel a bit off, I just grab my round tungsten carbide burnisher, and roll the edge back straight and away we go,,, It's totally insane how this stuff behaves. It is soft, sharpens fast and holds an edge like I've never seen,, it doesn't chip out all the time. To Cut the Blade (NO PICS), well that stinks! I laid the blade on a board with a wet rag under it, used a stainless steel ruler for a straight edge, clamped it all together, and cut it with a dremel tool. Doing it that way is probably close to nuts, but I got it done, you need a good mask and filtration for the air and lots of discs, and a spray bottle with water. I would have some suggestions to make it about 5000% easier,,, I can describe later,,, if there is any interest. The Dremel Disc,, Got carried away with bride cutting,, sounded just like a Strad,,
