    Is there a single location where I can read about the legal issues surround knife carry? I'm not so concerned about use, more about if this or that knife is legal in Indiana or elsewhere.

    aside from the sticky thread at the top of the Cutting Edge forum, you can join up to any of a number of knife related forums and read up. forums such as the Usual Suspect Network have members from EVERY state, and many countries. same way with BLADE forums, jerzee devil, and the like.

    the easiest way to determine it? thats a good question! i have never been one to worry to much about edge angles. i leave my sharpmaker on the more acute angle and leave it. when i free hand sharpen. but most knives i put convex edges on.... as do most custom makers, and there are a few reasons for this.

    quick and dirty, and not 100% accurate.

    the only 100% accurate way is to use a sharpener like the sharpmaker and do it on your favorite angle, so you KNOW thats what it is.... but even then, the angle is NEVER EXACTLY 20 degrees, or whatever, because of the flex in the systems, the mistakes in your hand motion, ect... all the variables.

    about the most exact angle you can get would be an edge pro or tormek sharpening system, but neither are cheap.

    Using the notches along the edges of the gage you can get a pretty good idea of what angle your knife's blade has been sharpened at.
