Even with a beston 500, I desire something more course to thin properly. I can't imagine trying to thin a knife with a soft 1000 like a King.

you can thin on anything, but it will take a hell of a long time if its not a coarse-ish stone

Tryed to thin it and sharpening it. Results i think is a huuuuge difference from the factory.

Sanding it down and polishing it then puting on a Mustard patina and it look blue and purplish :-D

Love the knife and cant thank you guys enough for greaaaaat tips :-D
