Don – Thanks for the comments. I am only flattening the last 1/4”-1/2” of the back. I can’t imagine how much work would be involved in flattening the entire back but I don’t want to find out!

I may end up getting additional DMT stones at the higher grits and get rid of the waterstones altogether as they are rather messy. Do you spray down your diamond stones with a spray bottle? And are you concerned with them losing their flatness over time? Thanks again!

John – Thanks for the advice. Despite all the information out there on the web (or perhaps due to that fact) I have found sharpening to be one of the most mysterious and challenging things to pick up. It’s always good to hear other methods and get confirmation I’m not missing something stupid! Thanks again.
