    I need you guys to recommend someone here on the forum that I can send my Tilt to for sharpening for a reasonable price. I've spent a lot of time today trying to get this knife sharp and it's just not working out. The sharpmaker is just extremely limited and I need someone who can free hand sharpen. Thanks guys.

    have you tried the sharpie marker trick?

    have you considered getting another sharpening system? the lansky 3 stone diamond kit will run you about $50 (model# LK3DM). it's basically free hand sharpening with a guided jig.

    Is it too late for a 3 minutes Hail Mary shot?

    if you did created burr for the entire length of the Tilt's blade at medium & then fine ceramic rods before it goes dull, email [email protected]. You can laught (wasted your time & mine ;)) or post whatever result+comments along with my suggestions. I don't have any knife with 9% of Vanadium but I can get cpm-m4(4%V, 5.5%W) & s30v(4%V) quite sharp with ceramic rods.

    On other hand, I am sure that a pro-sharpner would certainly will create a great initial edge for you. Much easier to perform on-going maint on a good edge.
