I scored a couple of hand planes (my first) off Ebay and started fettling them after watching about a thousand videos and reading almost every post on here about it.
When I got to the iron I realized that my 2” Spydercos, which work great on my chisels, were way to small to do a full size plane iron. So I bit the bullet and bought a couple more DMT diamond stones. After it took over an hour to establish the primary bevel on the course DMT I use to true my ceramics I knew I needed more. I now have the full set, extra course to extra, extra fine.
The irons are now razor sharp, but I don’t get the mirror finish that I get from my Spyderco ceramics.
Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong?
