ok guys I'm having trouble, made the switch to japanese steel and love it but... I cant get the OOTB edge when going free hand on the whetstones. Im using 1k 3k and 5k chosera stones. Im semi new to hand sharpening and going up and down with thumbs barely touching stone. Am I attacking at wrong angle or should I start with heavier grit? bevels off? I get a bur seems more from pushing with handle in left hand but when I switch I feel like Im not getting enough (I'm left handed). I do the debur between grits and I'm cutting paper with it but the cut is not as clean feeling as it was . getting hung up alittle in center of onion and such and not that near silent going through carrots root veg ect.. I love this knife and know it can be so much better. any help is much appreciated. thank you.
