    Thanks guys. I'm guessing I never established the apex since I can't see or feel a burr. Any tips on creating that apex? I'm afraid to remove too much metal I notice when I sharpen.

    Oops, mostly CTS-XHP, CPM-S30V, CPM-S35VN, ZDP-189, SB and VG-10. But I wouldn't mind owning a knife in M4 or M390.

    Completely forgot to mention that! Sorry!

    Thanks Chris. I was almost positive I wouldn't need anything lower than 1000.

    Cost wise, going with the DMT C, F, EF and the 306UF is definitely cheaper. I was thinking of going that route as...

    Am I a traitor if I buy an Edge Pro Apex 4?

    The Edge Pro looks awesome so I'm thinking of investing in one. I would still use the SM for "on-the-go" sharpening like at work or hiking or something. Or if I'm just too lazy to set up the EP haha....
