Yea, picked one of those up maybe 2 months ago actually. Great stainless, was amazed at the edge retention. It's interesting how even polished teeth will shave, like if I do a sloppy 1k edge that won't shave, and then strop it a few times, hairs start flying. Obviously this blade is less clean/pure and edge retention will be minimized, but it's amazing how easy it is to get them there via the strop cheat. Also, was just working some stones and am getting a shaving edge off the 2k, but not yet the 1k. Jason, I watched your video last night and have adopted your Murray Carter edge trailing strokes. It's cool to see so many different sharpening techniques via the vids. I'm still working out what works best for me. I started off very Mark Richmondish with sectionals and switching hands, but am now doing a more fluid drawing motion staying with dominant hand only.

Appreciate the help.
