To keep things simple in my mind, sometime I am guilty of over-simplified. After spent a bit of time looked at these SEM pics. One can agree that burnishes occurred either during sharpening and or stropping. If a medium/steel capable of having stable stretched & elongated & (idk but plausible) displacement volume, then this behavior COULD taken place at nano stropping level. unless the medium consists of discrete grain/block where impact from stropping never exceeded yield strength. Let's call this extrapolated deduction :dry:

I agree Bluntcut. I don't know exactly what caused it (burnishing is a verb, not a noun), but the spot you mark has definitely gotten bigger. That's not a phenomenon we usually see after wear.
