    Hom76- Sandpaper and Diamond paste on paper. It was microbeveled on a sharmaker rod. All freehand


    Kiwi_Digger 40 degree slots. I am sending it out with a 600 grit microbevel I freehanded it roughly between 17-20 degrees per side. I can ake it finer.

    I wouldnt maintain it with the strop but rather use the strop to refine the edge off the stone. Use minimal weight and sharpen till sharp pretty much. Dont do 20 on corners, 20 on flats etc, just stop when sharp.

    If the edge retention starts to regularly diminish, destress the edge by cutting into a stone and re-apexing, basiclaly just abrading away the weak steel at the edge.

    Cheers dude. I usually use just the flats on the stones using the jdavis method. It seems to work ok for me. I struggled with this knife for some reason though

    I might try and learn how to freehand myself on some cheap blades. Are there any tutorials out there?

    Not really interested in spending mega bucks on sharpening gear. I would rather buy more spydies

    Truly Awesome Edge!

    And at 40 degrees with CTS-XHP it's gonna hold on for a very long time
    Stay Sharp!
