Today I really dinged up my main EDC which is a Sprint G-10 handled Ayoob model. I definitely hit some big staples and nails that I didn't know that were there
Needless to say it called for a major reprofiling job which made me get out my most coarse 3M diamond benchstone. I spent almost 20 minutes grinding in the necessary relief and getting all the dings and dents out.
But much to my surprise when I started finishing it on the Spyderco 302 ceramic benchstones it sharpened up in a very wicked fashion I was probably working it at about 12 degrees or maybe slightly a little more narrow. And much to my surprise I left it there and finished my day's work and that blade held that narrow edge much better than I even dreamed that it would.
It has an edge close to that of a straight razor and it's holding it
Has anyone else had that good of luck sharpening VG-10 at such an extreme angle? Is there any other steel that can work well at that angle?
