This knife was sharpened with a Tri-Hone Sharpening Stone. There is a coarse side (400 grit), a medium side (600 grit), and a fine ( Approx 100=1200 grit). soaked in water for about 10 mins the started sharpening with an occasional splash of water. Might use oil for the fine grit side next time. Watching videos had me playing around with different techniques, but nothing too crazy to get awry. I'll be looking into some high quality wet stones for the future.
I sharpened a knife! It's a grafting knife and I wanted to reduce the angle on the edge a bit. So I reworked it to a 17 degree angle and did a tiny second bevel at 20 degrees. I used this little knife sharpening jig and it seemed to do a pretty good job of maintaining the desired bevel angle.

The primary and secondary edges were both sharpened, thus removing some of the pitting in the hollow grind. After a few more sharpenings, the hollow grind will be almost imperceptible.
I used a stone with corse and fine sides. It was then finished up with cardboard.
(Yes I know, but it's not even my cardboard, I just found it. Value the marginal, right? I would have used a piece of hickory if I were doing this at home.)
