    This is the edge on a kershaw skyline guided and a ladybug done with a V setup, I went 120, 180, 400, 800, 1200, 2000 then polish. The edge has a 600 grit stropped micro bevel.

    IIRC, Prime77 does his edges freehand.

    WOW, polished edges are just SOOOO Sexy. whats the protocol on touching up a polished edge? Im assuming yall dont just hit it with a leather strop? Do you have to start at a real low grit every time, or can you just hit it with a super fine 2,000 grit every couple days and be good?

    Also, how high in the grits do you go until you see diminishing returns? I take some of my wood finishes up to 12,000 grit Micro Mesh, anyone ever done something similar to an edge? This topic is fascinating...

    Well, I sharpen only my backbevels (24 inclusive) to the mirror polish.

    I use 600 grit microbevels (whatever lansky med rods are) for the very edge at 34incl degrees.
    I strop that edge with 0.5 micron paste on a leather strop. If I strop 5-10 (refining and removing burr) a side, I get a semi polished, fairly aggressive edge, capable of splitting hair with ease, passes 3 finger test, push cuts tp easily.
    If I strop about 30-50 a side, that edge is then polished and on some steels, will instead of splitting the hair, it will pop it like a straight razor. It still passes all the tests, but wont cut as aggressively.

    Some people may do their microbevels at anything from less than 80 up to over 8000 grit, depending on what performance is wanted.

    I hae one knife semipolished, the other polished

    some people may have no micro bevel and may go straight to the fine/coarse stones. ymmv

    Its amazing how visceral a well kept edge is yet is a seemingly rare thread topic, this is the essence of knife. I guess theres a level of proficiency that requires a focused, even artistic mind. Sharpening is functional steel sculpture. (goosebumps)
    I collect knives, my knives collect dust.
