I just finished up sharpening it.

I’m using king water stones. I have the 220–800 stone and the 1000–6000 stone.

I start by sharpening the first side with 220 until there is a burr on the other side.

then I sharpen the other side until not just a burr forms but until it looks even with the first side.

Now I move up to 800, I sharpen each side until a burr forms.

then I repeat with 2000.

now I repeat with 6000. After I have a burr form on each side, I finish it by passing it over the stone rotating once on each side. I do this about 10 times per side.

now it has a shaving sharp edge, I would show some proof but I’m running out of hair on my legs :lol:

I’ll post some better pics maybe tomorrow if it’s not raining.

thanks for looking!
