i sharpened a few days back raised a big burr and went on with your method did the 90 degree stroke with feather light pressure and then the high angle pass, some of the burr got off the knife but a big part of it stayed i had to continue with edge leading strokes for some time to get rid of the burr completely
my question is do you use feather-light pressure "only the weight of the knife " when doing the 90 degree and high angle pass or you use more than that ?
i also found out that with a smaller burr the same pressure i used was enough to deburr the knife but with this bigger burr it wasn't enough
You can use more pressure if you need to. It really depends on the steel and the stone you are using. Not all burrs are created equally.
