220# Stop

Wed Mar 26, 2014 5:33 am

Took my PM2 S90V & decided to do a test edge.

Profiled it to 15 dps with a micro bevel of 17 dps on the EP.

I used Atoma plates for the profiling & only 1 stone....the 220# Shapton Glass for the micro bevel - no mirror, no bling.

Made sure that there was absolutely no burr, using extreme light strokes.

It shaves arm hair in 1 pass and has terrific bite.

The 3 finger Murray Carter test....no ways...my brain refuses to agree.

On the opposite side of the sharpening spectrum I got to say that this "refined" coarse edge really grabs my fancy.

I have used it somewhat and doubt whether I will go with a higher grit again for me personally on my EDC.

Obviously S90V loves a coarse edge....will have to see on some of the other steels....

Interesting change of pace Rook. How did that edge work of you?

Great slicer - shitty push cutter.

I like a low grit edge on my pocket knives as well. Mine sit at 800 right now. If I wanted something I was cutting to look clean, I wouldn't be using a pocket knife on it. It's much more effective in terms of lifespan and general use.

Shame about that lost mirror edge, though.
