      Progression:

      1. 100-1000 WE diamond stones

      2. 1200-1600 WE ceramic stones

      3. 2000-10000 chosera stones

      4. Micro bevel at 20 degrees per side with 1000 grit diamond stone

      5. Finish with balsa strop with 1 – .5 micron diamond spray.

       

      I did the secondary bevel on this knife @ 17 degrees with the 20 degree micro bevel.  I chased around scratches with the water stones because of the multi-faceting but got them out eventually  .

              It’s not perfect, but it is one of my first near mirrored edges. Considering this is the 7th knife I’ve sharpened on the Wicke Edge so far, I’m pretty happy with it.

              The progression was 400#-1000# diamonds and then the 1500# diamond, 6 micron, 3 micron, and 1.5 micron diamond lapping films on glass.

                  Awesome finishes!

                  Did this Spyderco Nirvna a few weeks back.

                  steps. 22DPS 400-600-800-1000 on diamonds. 1200-1600 ceramic 1.6-0.6µ ceramic stroped with 5µ 3.5µ 1µ .5µ .25µ

                  Might get my glass handles tomorrow with 6µ 3µ 1µ .5µ diamond lapping films and a .125µ diamond spray, Cant wait 🙂

                  Too bad no EU dealers have the new 1500 Diamonds in stock. I really need every grid 🙂

                  Kind regards
                  Martin

                      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all. Kershaw Ken Onion Leek with my best polished edges todate. I made my own polishing tape holder before I know that Wicked Edge carries them. I ordered a set of blank handles, 2mm plastic sheet and 1″ x 6″ aluminum blanks to hold 1 micron 1″ x 6″ polishing tape. The 2mm plastic and 3mm tape blankes are 5mm; the same height as the WEP stones so I don’t have to adjust the pivot arms when moving from the ceramics to the tapes. This best fillet knife setup should get me to within 0.02 microns of the 15k Shapton stone at 0.98 microns and better than the 10k Chosera at 1.74 microns. As has been stated before; the finer you go in grit; the more and finer scratches are exposed. I am seeing that I need to spend more time with each grit applying less pressure on the finishing strokes for each before moving on the next finer grit. While the tapes will only last for a few knives they are still much cheaper than either the Chosera or Shapton stones. I’ve got abouot $30 into the tape holders and the polishing tapes themselves run about $10 for a package of 15 tapes where I get them. A pair of tapes should be able to do 3 or 4 knives so the $10 package of 15 tapes = 7 pair will do roughly 21 to 28 knives. Clay I think you should indicate on the WEPS site that you have tape blank holders. I enjoyed the exercise but that would have saved me some time.

                      I had this knife and it is super cool no doubt that. Now, using Spyderco and it also great.

                              Though I’m not Josh, it looks like a Chris Reeve sebenza.

                                You are right Mike! It’s a Chris Reeve Sebenza 25 if I’m not mistaken.

                                  Here’s tonight’s work. This is my best result yet!

                                  I spent a decent amount of time trying to get the knife mounted in the sweet spot and I think it paid off. Also, it was necessary to use the Tormek small knife adapter as this spear point blade would just slide right out of the clamp.
