    I had a convex 12″ Damascus knife come in. It had bad nicks nearly 1/8 deep and rusted. I bought a Worksharp Ken Onion sharpener to knock down blades witch are super dull. I noticed this Damascus knife had a concave knife. After 30 mins of trying to get a burr I decided to hit it with the worksharp. That helped start an edge and get me to a bur however, Should I have kept the blade as a concave edge? I could have used the worksharp to do that. Is it possible to do it with the WE? Here is the result

    I see you have a Gen 3 Pro.  I did a Youtube video a while back that shows one method of doing convex edges on a Gen 3 Pro.  In the video I use half-step increments to produce the convex edge.  After subsequent tests, I found you can do full-step increments with pretty much the same results.  See the video here.

    I use 2 step increments but then I use “Kangaroo Leather” to help blend the steps together.
