Thanks boys, here's the set up
The "beige" coloered stone is a prototype CBN Vitrified bond waterstone made for me that I use to "hog off" metal, then refined on the "burnt orange" colored 800 grit Naniwa diamond waterstone and finished on a 1 micron diamond strop.
I have alot of experience Sharpening Maxamet, you can see my knife on the bottom has been sharpened away from all the hard testing and sharpening over the past 6 Months.
I prefer the 800 grit finish the most.
Great blend of push cutting precision and toothy bite.
This 800 finish can still treetop, and still has a mirror to the edge, of course not as bright of a mirror as a higher grit nor would I want to shave my neck with this finish since it would not be as comfortable as a higher polish.l, conversely, a higher polish looses the bite faster on actually being a useful utility tool; cutting boxs, cutting plastic, twin, rope etc
I feel this is the best edge, a blend of both.
I also have a Naniwa 3k diamond, this stone definitely increases the edge precision but reduces the endurance on cardboard. I don't mind it on my personal knife since I can bring the edge back fast when the crispness drops.
