I got my first polished edge tonight, doing what is about my 12th knife. It just an Old Hickory paring knife that never did have an edge so I started at 100 grit and went all the wat to 1600 grit. Then I stropped down to 3.5 microns and was suprised how good it looked. It's not like Todd's super polished edges but it's a start. :)

Getting there! Wear down the stones, change directions with the paddles, spend extra time with each progressive grit, and get the strops biting in instead of ice skating, and it will improve ten fold.

I got much more of a polished edge tonight on my Strder SnG.





This is THE sharpest knife I've ever had!

That is a really beautiful knife and it deserves the wonderful polished edge you gave it. It is good to see the WEPS deliver as advertised. But it is not just your new rig that is responsible for that mirror bevel...your skill is already at a high level to achieve that Don. Great work mate!

All the best
