Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd add to this one. It's a theory I've had, and I've been putting it into practise with good results. I have a knife with a scandi grind. As you know with scandi there is no secondary bevel
, the entire primary bevel needs to be honed. It has been recommended not to strop scandi ground knives, because stropping leads to a convex bevel. I have a lansky sharpening kit. I thought I'll use the finest stone I have, which is the sapphire (2000 grit). The beauty of this is that it is like a strop with compound, but I can keep the bevel flat. The lansky hones actually give you something to hold while you're doing it too.
