Dear Mark,
I need some advice on how to do recurves on my folders with the edge pro.
Also, when you first came out with the shapton glass stones for the edge pro I got a set. I've never been able to use the 8k stone because for some reason it leaves scratches on the mirror finish that I get with the 4k. I'd like to really pimp the edge with a 8k finish. suggestions?
Thanks!
J. M.

This is a long shot but you wouldn't happen to have pictures of the edge under magnification would you?

Also how are you flattening the 8K? Talk to us about the process just in case that may be an issue.

You may not be completely removing the scratch pattern from the previous stones. Use a loupe to verify if the previous scratch has been removed before moving to the next stone.

Expanding on Otaku's point, try using the 8k in a different direction. This way you can separate underlying scratches from previous stones from 8k stone scratches. With Glassstones, you can get a brighter finish using lots of water and keeping the black metal swarf from building up on the stone.

You might in addition to flattening the stone, texturize it to a finer finish and round off the edges of the stone since the sharp edges of the stone can sometimes impart abberant scratches.

For recurves you can use a narrower stone to more easily follow the curve of the blade. For some customers with very particular requirements I have shaped stones to more precisely follow these curves than a narrow stone can do.
