Brad,
I really don't have enough time using the monk's to know just how many bf I'll be getting. I like the way they saw and I've had good results with them after resharpening. I'm on my third resharpen with the two I've used, it'll be interesting to see if I experience breaking them too. One thing I've noticed (using the cat claw setter) is the lack of set in the new monks. I'm going to get a new one out of the box and check it to be sure, but (if  remember right) there was only about 15 thou on the one I checked. *** edit: Just checked a new blade and it averaged 16 thou set. *** I reset them to 21 thou on the first sharpening and they sawed good but were a little rougher. Keep in mind I'm still in the beginning of the learning curve.

Tom,
Thanks for clearing that up. I got two cams with the grinder and the other cam is ground for the cook's super sharp blades. Theres a difference in the looks of the profile for the monks and supersharps even though both are 7/8 pitch. The cook's also looks like it might be ground with less hook, I'll have a better idea after I get a chance to use them.
