I can easily produce the sharpest edge anyone has ever seen.
Dude! That's like jumping up on the table in a bar full of tweaked bikers and screaming, "Harley Davidson sucks, and you all shoot like my grandma!"
I'm not gonna stick you, though. Your knives very well could be sharper than mine. I'm still learning. But I'm excited to see yours, as I recently picked up my first Spyderco. It's a Manix 2 Lightweight with the same S110V as yours. I was never interested in the brand before, but I got curious. The factory edge was nice, but last night I couldn't help myself and got out the sharpening tools.
Check out the attached pics. I'm at work, and theses are the best I could take on short notice. I took it to 1 micron emulsion, and I'm happy with it for now. I have some 0.25 micron nanodiamond on the way, and I'm eager to see how that works.
If you just got into knives take a look at Mike Janich's (Martial Blade Concepts) youtube videos. They are pretty interesting. I have a Spyderco Yojimbo 2 and love it! That Wicked Edge sharpening system looks complicated. Is it easy to use?
What do you think of the S110v steel or is it too soon to ask?
Sure, I've had the opportunity to play with the S110V a bit. First time around, I had the jig set to about 22 degrees, minus whatever I lose from the full flat grind. Ahdunno... maybe 17 degrees? I polished it with 1.0 micron CBN, and it was great. After a couple weeks of light use, I noticed what felt like a burr. Under magnification, I could see the edge had some chips.
Next time around, I set the jig to 24 degrees and polished it down to 0.25 micron nanodiamond. I've given it a fair bit of light use and a little bit of medium use, and it's still sharp enough to worry my fingerprints. Under magnification, I can see one area that looks like a tiny chip, but it's too small to notice through use or touch. The rest of the edge looks very consistent. I'll keep it like this for a while.
