After all that was done it was time to move on to the Fine DMT.
Not a big change but it did its job to allow me to move to my next stone, the EF DMT. This is the point where you start to see a improvement in finish and sharpness.
Now this is where I changed things a bit and used the DMT suggested way of sharpening. After the EF stone I used the 6 micron diamond paste on hardwood. you can see a little paste on the bevel
And after the 6 micron
From here I used the EEF stone to refine the bevel even further though the scratch pattern was finer the stones tend to cut deeper.
Lots more to add but its my bed time so I'll see ya all later
