Is the best I can find. Looks like the idea is you create a secondary bevel rather than trying to hone the curve itself.

As Tigerman eludes to, you can just sharpen flat. You're confusing the grind with the edge. Many production knife markers put a hollow ground because in some ways it's easier to manufacture and the customer doesn't have to remove as much material when sharpening. I honestly dont know of a blade that has a hollow ground edge other than straight razors or reed knifes (for woodwind instruments ). The edge otherwise folds too easily.
