Anybody attempt to use their Work Sharp (KO) to modify the spine of a knife for fire steel use? Any tips or tricks? Or is the belt just going to produce rounded edges?

Thanks.

I think the major thing is just to get the coating off of it, The sharper the angle the better it will be at catching the Flint.

For a fire steel I like to use the knife blade. I use the portion as close to the bolster as I can get to keep from messing with the area of the blade normally used for cutting purposes.
