Benchmade 558 DLC M4 - Ritter Mini Griptilian 2.9 0.1 CPM M4 59-61 15 10k chosera, 0.5 strop Top A.75 EDC
 
Authors Comments:Had to go with top position to get clearance for 15 deg. A.75 got the bevel pretty even, just a little more on the belly and tip, but looks good. Stropped with both balsa and leather at 15 deg.

Authors Comments:Chisel Ground Tanto. I focused on the primary side nocking the burr off the back side down to 400 grit. After 400 grit I sharpened all the way down to 3.5 micron leather strops. Holds a great edge for a long time under normal daily use.
