We have a massive amount of Edge Pro products so we figured it would be good to have a whole section on how to use the machine and what to use on it.

Sharpening ZDP189 knives with edge pro

Sat Jun 22, 2013 7:45 pm

Hi Mark - I have a couple of ZDP-189 knives (Miyabi and Spyderco) that I have been sharpening with a Sharpmaker at 15 degrees and would like to reduce the Miyabi to it's original 12 degrees. Is the glass Shapton 220 adequate for this or do I need to bite the bullet and pick up the 140 diamond plate? I also thought that a 2/1 reduction in stone grit was ideal. Is the progression from 1000 to 4000 in the Essential set workable or do I need to get the 2000? Do I also need to get the DMT 120 plate to resurface the shaptons immediately or can that wait awhile? I'm attempting to keep the cost as reasonable as possible.
Thanks ....Ron

Hi Ron,

The 220 glass stone will work fine for the steel you're sharpening and it's about half the price of the plate. It will take a little longer to do but it should be no problem.
