    What’s the best way to sharpen that last 3/16 of an inch that can’t be reached with the stones?

    Do I need to grind off  the plastic so I can get the stone right up to the ricasso (I think that’s the proper term).

    Thanks for any help.

    That’s what I did. Just one side of each. The barrel sandpaper tip on the dremel worked best for me.  Wear eye protection and watch out for that hot plastic when ur grinding.

    Grinding off the plastic is one way. Another way, which I did, is to make a sharpening notch in the knife (I did this on a Spyderco Tenacious). And of course you could settle for a little unsharpened part of the blade. But really, I don’t understand why they design such knives. Definitely not with use/sharpening in mind.
