I don't if it's due to my poor technique, but I noticed my final edges after some major changes (new bevel, major thinning) are much better after some waiting time. Does this sound familiar to you? Has it to do with some rearrangements within the steel structure? I do think so because I noticed it with more complex steels (e.g. VG-10, AS) rather than with more simple ones (C85). Or is it just me getting tied??
