I sharpened a Maestro Wu folding knife to shave ready using the WEPS Chosera 1K, 3K, 5K, and 10K stones and finishing with Ken Schwartz's .125 CBN. This is the shave - videos of me sharpening the knife are coming next!

Next up is the actual tutorial! This is part 1, where I introduce the stones, and discuss lapping/cleaning along with accounting for the angle differences between the stocks and the Choseras.

Part 2 actually sharpens a knife from 400, 1K, 3K, 5K, and 10K Choseras, finishing with .125 CBN and leather.

It's long, but I didn't edit out the beginning few stones so that you can get an idea of what really happens. Later grits are edited for time reasons.

Great stuff, thanks for posting these. I like the way you put in the photos from your progression blog too.

Just got done watching your vids Tom... excellent info! I realized my primary mistake when trying to get a "shave ready" edge was that I was using too much pressure and too many strokes. Question... after the end of the sharpening process (the 2nd vid) did the edge pass the HHT? I saw you just checked it on a napkin... but it looked like it shaved real well in your shaving video. Is that all you did to it?
