Report Sharpening Knives. To Microbevel or Not to Microbevel! in The Pegbox Posted yesterday at 02:41 AM I sharpen and shape carefully and flat. Then I have strop routine. Does that round or bevel the final edge? Then as needed a resharpen not so carefully. I make sure each stage I use in resharpening goes fully to the edge. But I use as few stages as I can get away with. And each time I use the strop. I think these resharpenings probably do bevel the edge some. When it does fell right anymore, then I flatten again. Etc.
