So this is the 2nd time dulling my PM2 in S30V at work. And touching up with only diamond loaded leather paddles.
The factory bevel is at 15DPS, microbevel is at 20DPS.
After the knife dulls, I clamp it in my Wicked Edge and strop the edge at around 18-19 degrees and it becomes scary sharp in a matter of minutes heel to tip.
The knife cuts like a laser, and this method is excellent without grinding metal and edge longevity. The edge always feels finished.
I only use leather paddles. And it brings a wire edge that couldn’t shave, or even bite a nail to factory razor sharp.
I just think it is amazing how you can entirely leave out the stones. As you just do not need them.
