Curious to know if anyone has had this problem and if you have any suggestions. I'm pretty good with the EP and after going 220, 330, 600, and then a loaded strop, I can get the back 2/3 of the blade very sharp. But despite being very conscientious about making sure that all blade sections i sharpen are parallel to the edge of the machine, I can never get the front third (near the tip) to shave hair. Anyone had a similar experience? Any tips?

Did you raise a burr in that section?

The tip being thinner & narrower tends to flex and tilt easily especially on a longish blade - take care of these facts.

Yes, I get a burr on both sides every time. That makes sense that the tip is thinner and more flexible, but any practical tips on how to compensate/allow for that?

Less tip overhang with less pressure on the stone arm.
