Gerber Mini Covert 3" 0.110" 154CM Not listed 19 1k diamond for duty/carry, but takes well to full out mirror polish too! Top A.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:In matching the factory bevel, an even 19 degrees per side ends up 18 on the left arm and 20 on the right arm. Thus far the 19 degree edge has held up very well, as a 154CM should!

SOG Twitch II 2.68" .1" AUS-8 HRC 57-58 22 3.5u Top A.5
 
Authors Comments:My progression was 800 to 1600 ceramics. Then 14, 10, 5, 3.5u strops. 100 strokes with each strop then would flip strops end for end at 50 so the whole strop would get worn evenly
