I have tried taking pictures, but either the lighting or camera is not good enough to see the edge
@Pensacola Tiger - I will get a loupe to see more closely at what I'm sharpening.
I was actually planning on the Beston/Bester/Suehiro Rika combination set found on certain websites. Not sure if I want to invest in a diamond plate at the moment because of the price, and am unsure of which brand.
Also, I've been deburring on wine cork, with about 3 light strokes.
@stevenStefano & @mhlee- The mentioned comment was not on CKTG forum. I may have been mistaken on the definition of reprofiling/profiling, or is there different interpretations on the word?
Based on what I'm constantly reading is that AEB-L does seem to depend on the heat-treatment of the maker, and is probably better and more consistent with a craftsman that makes the AEB-L blade in small volumes.
