Hi Chris!
First off let me welcome you aboard the good ship Wicked Edge!
I love your description of your first sharpening experience with the WEPS. Very well done my friend. Interesting that you referred to your first try as a Zen moment as that is the way I feel ever since I got the hang of using this rig. Although much of the sharpening is looked after by the fine engineering of the WEPS, there is much to be said about tuning-in with all your senses as you work. This Zen-like tuning-in leads to better and sharper edges IMHO!
Once more Chris, job well done! Put up some shots of your knife if you can swing it!

Very best regards
Never go anywhere without your knife!

My tip with Kimber 1911's is put 300 rounds + down the pipe, then start measuring failure issues. It is almost always not enough wear in on the springs.

Laser sights are good for one thing. Defending yourself. Put the red dot on the target and squeeze the trigger. They are great if you use them for what they are good at, but you still need to train iron sights.

I have two kimpers...a Raptor II and and stainless steel ultra carry 2. I love them both, especially the Raptor, which is a tack driver. One piece of advice i can give you is ammo. Be careful of the ammo you use. Crappy ammo will create problems. I have not had any problems with reloads, so long as ful metal jackets are used. Lead nose bullets jam my Raptor. Anyway, IMO you can't go wrong with a Kimber.

I have 3 Kimbers, let's have a party! :)

I shoot moly-coated or jacketed reloads in mine along with carry ammo with no problems.
