By “sharpen” I mean simply restoring the microbevel, not reprofiling.

Another "yes", it's been great on my K390 Urban. Looking forward to picking up more in a Delica/Endela/Endura once I make up my mind which one.

I used my SM last night to touch up my K390 Urban so I could carry it today.

Yes. Numerous times. The sharpmaker rods will cut K390.

I touch up my K390 on my SM without a problem. I really fell in love with this steel because I can sharpen it with what I have and it generally out performs everything in the ways I need it to.

K390 is not a difficult steel to sharpen, you could probably touch it up on the bottom of a coffee mug if you wanted.

I have my K390/pakkawood Police 4 in my pocket today. Touched it up on the brown rods at 20 degrees last night, about ten strokes per side. Easily sends arm hairs flying and didn't scrape shave prior.

Yes. In fact I was surprised at how quickly and easily it was shaving hair after a few 40 degree passes. Impressive sharpening response IMO.
