Maa, I copied your $$$ reflection idea:D
Looks fantastic Ryan!
Not quite polished but very sharp. My first time using a strop. http://i677.photobucket.com/albums/v...ic82/sharp.png
Here is my other delica... not sure on the angle of the "main" bevel but the kinda sorta micro bevel is a third to half the way up the main bevel...Main bevel is through the UF stone on the sharpmaker and the kinda sorta micro bevel is at 30 degrees with the flat side of the medium stone on the sharpmaker
Uhh... Does someone have a $100 bill I can barrow... You know, to take a pic with.
I'll give it back.:D
so, Just got a sharpmaker for 60 NZD (49 USD) shipped, thats half the price they average here, lets see what I can do with that badboy when I get it :D
I take my time when sharpening so it takes probably 90 minutes to do a polish on a knife for me if I go up through the UF stone for the micro bevel. I dont do stroke counts for my bevels, i just use my sharpie and use corners of stone until sharpie is completely gone and then i sharpie again and then use the flats of the stone until it is gone then i switch to the next stone and do the same thing. I usually clean the stones when i switch from the back bevel to my micro bevel as well.
Polished bevel on my new Dragonfly G10 :D
Polished bevel on my Para2 and Dragonfly. I used a Lansky sharpening system and a poor man's strop.
