    That’s great advice. Most of us don’t have the magnifying capability to see an edge that close up. For the longest time, until you touched upon it in another thread, I couldn’t understand why some of my stropped edges seemed less sharp than they were before I started.

    I have this stuff called nanocloth, that I bought early on because people smarter than me said to. It’s a little squishy, which I’ve come to think might not be such a great characteristic.

    What kind of glass is recommended for flattening the diamond matrix stones. I’ve got the 240 grit aluminum oxide but not sure if I need float glass or plate glass or?
    Also should I flatten the diamond matrix stones before the first use?

    I’ve got the complete set coming and I’m really looking forward to using them on the tsprof ko3.
    Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. Lots of great info here.

    I think any kind of flat glass will work too however.

    I the guy I got the stones from sold me a whole set that he used only 3 times when I got them I tried using them the way they were then I tried dressing which didn't help and it was with 240 aluminum oxide powder that the guy go from edge pro's site when he ordered them.

    I had a full set of your stones and tried them all,I used light pressure when sharpening with the Matrix stones and I never like to use a lot of pressure when sharpening with any stone as I feel it give poor result's.
    I like to use trailing edge strokes when finishing with most of the stones I use and I did the same thing with the Matrix stones.

    If you go to Edge Snobs on Facebook and look up Scott Gunn he did a review on them a while back,he doesn't think your stones are terrible and he found the same thing that I did that the Matrix stones don't give the edge as much bite as the Venev stones,Scot won't care if you join the group and reach out to him.

    It sounds like you did everything right so I will just chalk it up to you like a different flavor of ice cream. If we all liked the same thing there wouldn't be nearly as many stone choices to play with. Keep in mind the lightest pressure a Venev will still cut at is the most pressure you want to use on a Matrix stone, they are totally different in this regard. As for "bite" what grits did you finish with and why not just step down a grit, or two?
