    I use diamond steels. and sharpen the edge into them much like trying to slice a very thin layer of the steel off. Then when i have progressed thru the finer grits and have a fine edge i strop on the razor strop course then fine in the opposite motion as the steels. blade is sharp when the hairs on your arm jump off under minimal effort.
