In my shop we hand sharpen all our blades with wet stones starting at 1000g, then 1200, ...up to 6000g. It has a mirror finish…..scalpel sharp. We sharpen everything once a week (unless it wasn’t used). This might be a little over kill but it took me a while to understand the importance of sharp tools…...and what SHARP really was. I worked for a long tie with tools that were “sharp” to me…..then I used a truly sharp tool…..theres no such thing as too sharp IMHO.
