    From what I have seen on your Youtube channel, you are too busy MAKING smart things to worry so much of saying anything......other than narration, that is. I really like your round post anvil.

    The ratio does not change with the type of grind, all types of grinds should be within the above range.

    I agree, but...if your grinding a wedge ( 1/4 hollow single concave grind) then the 4:1 ratio will result in the widest bevel which takes longer to hone ( your removing more steel). Just something to keep in mind.

    Hope this helps
