Buck Metro (759) 1" ? 420HC ? 17 1000# daniel, a few light cleanup passes with 5um leather See comments A.5 EDC
 
Authors Comments:Clamp on the bottle opener ring, the aluminum body section will control depth. Align to A.5 and level out the little blade with the clamp as best you can! Works surprisingly well.

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
