    Hey all,

    Sorry, this post is also in the getting started section, because I don’t know where it actually goes.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I’m new to wicked Edge, and fairly new to sharpening. I just received my new Gen 3 Pro system today, and can’t get a sharp edge on my pocket knife. By this, I mean, I can sort of shave with it, but can’t slice paper. Is this just because the stones are still new? I’ve used this knife as my sharpening guinea pig on a few different sharpening methods ( Lansky, flat stone, SharpMaker), I did reprofile it with the new system today to even out the angles, by getting my wire edge on both sides with a 100-200, then working my way up in grits from there. Maybe like 50 strokes per side per grit. Is this simply due to break in period? I admit I have a lot to learn, but gotta start somewhere. Thanks</p>
