First a note of encourgement to all of the folks out there that might be sharpening challenged as I was/am.
Spyderco gives us great blade materials. It gives a great deal of enjoyment when a blade this thick gets this sharp It's phone book paper and yes, it is a spot of blood I didn't notice until after I took the pic.
Keep them sharp but please be careful once they get there. A sharp blade will cut you in the wink of an eye. You won't even notice
