Plus, you're using leather without edge rounding so my guess is that you know what your doing here. So I'm back to guessing that the felt you have as being too soft.

    I just lay it flat horizontally on prep table and use moderate pressure, unloaded. Angle of approach is that of higher than the edge, I'd guess 5-10deg more. Starting at the tip and sliding on a bias ending with heel.

    Panda, Thanks. I loaded mine with 1u Diamond spray. Tried raising the blade above sharpening angle but it just rolled/polished the edge. Given the you've had success, probably means my technique needs work. I'll give it another try.
