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!

wow sure like the way you did it from start to finish.  thanks for all the pics and directions.   :)

gave me lots of ideas on how to make the sheath for the big camp knife that I am making.  long ways away from the sheath though.

keep it up the great work mason
