Thanks Leo! I actually do have a loupe and check the edges before I change stones.

The knives are definitely sharp. Very happy with the edges I get with them. Was able to sharpen an extremely dull kitchen knife to curl phone book paper. ;)

I'm hoping I cant get the hair whittling sharpness because I'm still working on my technique, stones havent been fully broken in (I think I've only done 10 knives), and I havent tried playing with the strops yet. :D

Hi Narcoleptic,
Sounds like you are on the right track. I would think your stones should be very close to broken in now? Mine created beautiful edges right around 10-12 knives. I would really like to suggest to you trying the strops. The leather refinement takes it to a whole new level!! :woohoo: For me it created a whole new problem? I had to buy the others just to see what I was missing? Each seems to have their own place in whatever your goal is? I can honestly say when I go normal WE progression up to 1K dmt stone> 10/14 diamond balsa> 5 diamond "roo" the knife is one of the most popular EDC among my friends and customers.
I'm betting that if you do use the strops? You will pass the HHT no problem!! :ohmy:
Good luck and have fun!!!
