Authors Comments:Chisel Ground Tanto. I focused on the primary side nocking the burr off the back side down to 400 grit. After 400 grit I sharpened all the way down to 3.5 micron leather strops. Holds a great edge for a long time under normal daily use.

Cold Steel Black Sable 4" .125" San Mai III 58 HRC 18 primary bevel, 19 degree micro bevel 1600# Top B.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:I originally created the bevels at 18 degrees and polished them to .5 microns before adding a micro-bevel at 19 degrees with the 1600# ceramic stones to give a mirrored bevel and slightly reduced shoulder while making the actual edge a little wider and giving it some micro teeth.
