Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

Yep. If it is PE (plain edge) it should be easier to sharpen than vg-10 because the H1 is a softer metal. Unless you are talking about SE H1, you will have to ask the others about sharpening serrated edges on the sharpmaker. Almost all my knives are PE. You mean serated knives ? I do not like those...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

I think it might help the conversation along if I point out where I got the crazy idea that stropping firmly on a piece of leather might help. I realize that Ernest Emerson might not be the biggest authority on sharpening, but I think it's safe to say he's handled and used a knife or two. When I re...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

If you got it razor sharp them my advice it to keep doing what you are doing. Take my directions as a conceptual explanation. Use the flats whenever you can. The corners concentrate pressure and pressure is bad.... I didnt use the flats as it is really sharp right now. If i use the flat white then ...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

I don't strop and for a few reasons I am more or less against it. If you can achieve the results you want with it then by all means go for it. I don't think it produces an edge as long lasting as a stone does. I feel the same way about steeling. I would always rather use a stone to produce a clean ...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

This is gonna sound harsh but sharpening is not for those who like instant gratification. If watching the Sharpmaker video is too long and too wordy then you have an uphill battle in front of you. Sharpening is something that even after 30 years I am still getting better at all the time. You need t...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

Thanks for all the tips Wil try the diamonds tomorow. Should i go left right left right left right ? Me personally - reprofiling to 30 degrees, I stick to 1 side until I get a nice burr. Then, switch to the other side only until the burr has been pushed over. A complete burr along the entire edge i...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

Have you watched the dvd that came with the sharpmaker? It shows how to hold the knife. If not here it is on youtube. You want to hold the blade perfectly vertical. For me standing a little further back helps as does using my kitchen table instead of my kitchen counter. My table is a little lower a...

Re: Cant get delica razorsharp anymore with triangle...

Reprofile it!!! 30 degree setting, and work one side (i like to use the flats personally). Brown rods or diamond/CBN if you have them. It takes awhile. Get a burr so the opposite of the edge is starting to roll over, you can feel it with your nail. Then, switch and work the other side until you pus...
