There is a 9500 listed in the knife data base. Likely the same steel if yours is the 9100 or 9101.

you should be able to get hair whittling straight off of the 1k and a strop... I can get tree topping (plinks hairs off above the surface of my arm) straight off of the 1k stones w/ no strop.

make sure your stones are broken in as well... this will help! (8-10 knives)

all ur buddies will love you once they find out you can sharpen knives! =) hope you stay safe over there bro...

If your buddies are the ones who have your six, I wouldn't charge 'em much.

good point tom... but I would still charge a little, otherwise that's all he will be doing (unless he just says "no" lol). but you are right!

I offer the first time for free but we are infantry and it sad to say but they do not care for their blades as well as I would like them too lol so I gotta charge them so they treat their poor knives better and with a little more respect.

I was thinking of trying a convex edge on some of the larger combat knifes but idk much about it or if it's worth while, I have the fixed blade ADAMAS from benchmade (love the thing!) and thought about testing it there

My 2¢ mirror edges are for show, 1000grit is a great edge.
Personally, wouldn't worry about convexing.

600 grit may well be fine for their/your needs. Above that may be over kill/ bragging rights.

Bragging rights and mirror edges take more time, cost more money.
