Hey this arrived in the mail the other day, reasonably sharp OOTB, however I decided to take it across a 1000 (JCK), 2000 and 5000 (korin, mizuyama) grit to really polish it up. The knife was stupidly sharp before stropping however after stropping gently on a leather belt it was quite dull. I suspect I've folded the edge, which is surprising as I was under the impression super steel was pretty tough! The only thing I can think of is re-sharpening at a more obtuse angle -- any suggestions?
