    Stone Progression, nothing complicated

    So Iíve been thinking that my edges might be getting too polished. I sharpe much less these days because since Iíve switched to touching them up with a ceramic rod followed by cromium on balsa followed by dimaond spray on leather. Sometimes just diamond/leather. I always cut on a end grain cherry/walnut board

    My question is: When I do take them back to the stones, do you think I should stop with the Blue Aoto?

    My progression:
    1200 Bester with nagura
    Blue Aoto with nagura
    Ohira Tomae with nagura
    Ozuku Asagi with 1 micron diamond spray

    I always use very light strokes so I donít remove too much metal. Do you think Iím going too far? I canít get the edges to shave hair or catch tomatoes unless I finished up with an Ohira/Ozuku

    you don't need to go fine grit to shave hair or catch tomatoes. try stropping after the aoto without any compound.

    If my bevel is already set I generally go 1k, 2k and microbevel with 6k. That's it. I might strop with bare or loaded leather if the knife needs it.
