My New Edge Pro Apex and Chosera water stones came in yesterday so I tried it out last night on a Buck Vantage and the results were sub par. Of course I had been out chasing hogs all day so I was fairly tired. The Buck came out sharp but it was nothing to look at.

I decided to give it another go this morning and WOW, this thing is really cool. It took me about 2 hours to go from completely dull to mirror finished, TP slicing, Hair whittling edges on 2 knives. I did my ZT 0560 and my New Chinook II.

ZT:
The Cutting Edge

The Cutting Edge

The Spyderco
The Cutting Edge

And the results:

The Cutting Edge


Overall I am really impressed with this system. There is definitely a learning curve with it but it is pretty short. Both of these knives were sharpened to 10,000 grit Chosera water stones and stropped to a very very sharp edge. I have only gotten edges like this 1 or 2 other times in my life before I got the Edge Pro, and they didn't look as pretty.

This system is definitely easier to use on blades that have big flats like the Chinook II. The ZT was a little harder to hold flat on the table since it has a swedge and high grind, but still very doable.

You mention holding the knife flat on the table, does the pocket clip get in the way?

No it is only the blade that is held on the EP's table. I use the flat and the ricasso of the blade to keep it flat. Full flat and hollow grinds with large flats are the easiest to do so far. Blades with minimal flats like the 0560 are doable but a little more care is needed to keep them level.
