    A thread a little while ago mentioned something about the "apex". It was a complaint thread. I'm still trying to figure out what the apex of a knife is... point?

    So from this thread's point of view, using knife jargon that few know what it means is humorous.

    The edge. When you sharpen a blade, you want the sharpened sides to meet in a smooth precise line: the apex.

    That was my other possible definition. The edge. Why not just call it the cutting or sharpened edge?

    Some people deploy their knife, some people open it. Some people sharpen the edge, some people sharpen the apex.

    A photo of me can be found in your average dictionary when you look up the word "apex." Because I am the bestest.

    I thought it was against the rules to insult another member in this forum? Gleefully pointing out someone is "ugly" is pretty insulting, IMO.

    Because the edge can include the entirety of the bevel (and micro-bevel). The apex is a specific part of the edge, where the bevels meet.

    More specifically, the bevels are what are sharpened and their junction, the apex, is what dictates the effective "sharpness" by its width and uniformity. The angle of the bevels relative to the blade's centerline is your edge angle, but the width of the apex is your sharpness. It's all just an effective way of further breaking down the terminology of what makes up an "edge" so that individual variables can be discussed independent of other aspects.

    I haven't read the entire thread, but here's my addition:

    People who have disdain for a certain knife brand (whichever brand it happens to be), yet whenever thread concerning a knife from that brand comes up, they are compelled to post and get into arguments about how much it and the brand itself is overpriced and sucks.

    No, it's not funny. And the irony of the last line is overwhelming. Thread closed.
