nice to hear you had success!

I think it comes down to technique and steel. You never know if you're doing it right when sharpening crap steel.

Now go forth and start a stupidly large collection that we can gab over :D

Now strop it on some cardboard followed by some newsprint...the political editorials make for good edges...strop em away!

Yes trailing strokes work great...If you want to get a better edge wrap a piece of brown grocery bag around your stone...strop the blade about 10-15 times on each side...Paper is the poor mans 10k stone :)

"feels good to know you can do that to a knife doesn't it"

Ain't that the truth. Knowing how to keep your tools in good repair give you a lot of confidence in using them.
