    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

    Reflection:

    How long does it take you to polish bevels on the sharpmaker? Are you using diamond rods to reprofile?

    I have only done polished bevels on my PM2, Sage 3, Ambitious, and old school Aus8 Endura. I start reprofiling the back bevel to 30 inclusive with the diamonds and then progress through medium, fine, and ultra fine. For the micro bevel i do 40 inclusinve with medium, fine, ultra fine, and end with my strop. i could just stop with the medium stones if i want a more "working edge" on the micro bevel but I keep going through the UF.

    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.

    It takes me probably around 45 min.- about 1 hour or 15-30 min if i am going really fast. and i am not using the diamond rods to reprofile, just a small, coarse diamond stone clamped to one of the sharpmaker stones.

    That's seriously good maa14. I was expecting at least a few hours.

    Thanks! The zdp blade took me a while longer though..I might take longer on blades that I really want to have a pretty close to perfect polish (or the best you can get w/ the sharpmaker stones) like the Manix but with my vg10 delica I really didn't take my time because that blade I am going to use A lot . on some knifes that you don't have to reprofile a ton( all the ones I have pictured except the zdp) are a lot faster. I noticed this when I started to reprofile the edge on some of my friends Henkels kitchen knives...takes a lot longer(more like 1-2 hours), and I am being much more careful because they aren't mine...

    Polished bevel on my Para2 and Dragonfly. I used a Lansky sharpening system and a poor man's strop.
