Thanks, I appreciate it.
Glad to see I'm not the only one with this problem...thought I'd lost my touch on the whetstone with this one
I’m starting to think it may be the steel. I’ve had trouble with other blades made of AUS-8. I’ve had trouble with other CRKT blades, too. The larger spearpoint M-16 in particular comes to mind. I couln’t ever get a good edge on that one. It just felt very soft. There’s that and I know I don’t have very good touch on the stone to begin with. I’m either too heavyhanded, too light, or can’t maintain the proper angle.
