O YA for some reason I thought it was $5 for shipping and $20 to get it sharpened but I doubled checked and its only $5, I think im gonna do that instead!

100???? Wow! Maybe that what my problem was, I was probably doing around 10 on each side, since I dont use my blade much just to cut things here and there... :/Roundabout136 wrote:My PM2 is probably around 30* from the factory, I use the 40* setting on the sharpmaker to give it a microbevel. I continue to sharpen with the 40* bevel as it will slowly but eventually wear all the 30* factory bevel away.
How many strides are you doing per side? I usually do 100 or so on the fine stones to get back a quick edge. You may have to do more or less depending.
Depending on how sharp the edge is. On my VG-10 Delica it won't take nearly as much. S30V is tough stuff.kmorar556 wrote:100???? Wow! Maybe that what my problem was, I was probably doing around 10 on each side, since I dont use my blade much just to cut things here and there... :/
