I got the last flexcut carving knife. It was either a demo model or returned after being abused. It is NOT sharp. I have stropped it but it is not getting sharp enough. Do I sharpen like a normal blade or is there something special?

could be the edge angle is too large. Like, it may have been stropped too many times, or incorrectly. You may have to reshape the edge. Suggest you do a google search on “scary sharp”. Strop AFTER you shape the edge.

very sharp.
