So ... tried to kill a few german knifes - didn't succeed - they came out great (for a newbie like me)
I have used a mixed approach of what I have seen and read and think I got a way that works for me. Thanks for all your suggestions/adwise
I'm using approx. 30 min. per knife - going from grit 400 - 1000 - 3000 - 5000 and strop on some cardboard (for now).
I was wondering how much time you guys spend sharpening a dull knife sharp - I'm all ears
