    I printed the lines out on regular paper and then just put the knife edge down on top. Once I found the right angle to hold the camera so that the bevel would reflect back, I snapped a few shots.

    My Epic failed attempt at humor. Meant as compliment to the polished edge.

    Here are some more recently sharpened knives:

    Had a great time with all of these. The Carter knife send in by David McMurtrey is definitely my favorite; Hitachi Super Blue core, hand forged. Sharpened on the Wicked Edge at 15 degrees per side, polished to .125 microns with a variety of pastes including 1ร‚ยต Boron Carbide, .5ร‚ยต Chromium Oxide, .25ร‚ยต Mono-Crystalline Diamond and .125ร‚ยต Cubic Boron Nitride

    I got my first polished edge tonight, doing what is about my 12th knife. It just an Old Hickory paring knife that never did have an edge so I started at 100 grit and went all the wat to 1600 grit. Then I stropped down to 3.5 microns and was suprised how good it looked. It’s not like Todd’s super polished edges but it’s a start. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Getting there! Wear down the stones, change directions with the paddles, spend extra time with each progressive grit, and get the strops biting in instead of ice skating, and it will improve ten fold.

    I got much more of a polished edge tonight on my Strder SnG.



    This is THE sharpest knife I’ve ever had!

    That is a really beautiful knife and it deserves the wonderful polished edge you gave it. It is good to see the WEPS deliver as advertised. But it is not just your new rig that is responsible for that mirror bevel…your skill is already at a high level to achieve that Don. Great work mate!

    All the best

    Thanks guys but honestly if I can do it so can anyone – all it takes is some practice and getting the stones broken in. Once you start really working those stones and strops you can get this finish every time!
