    This thread has been terrific for the knowledge gained in sharpening this "Super Steel". I am going to copy and paste each of the tidbits into a word document for later referral. Thanks all who are contributing. OH
    Ps Of course I'm enjoying each variation of this knife - the handle material chosen is by far the show stopper.

    I didn't clean mine, I figured that I would go with the good old pocket polish from carrying without a sheath.

    Is everybody that's been washing, buffing, scrubbing, polishing, and otherwise molesting the Rams Horn covers on your 2020 Blade Forums knives reading this? Scrub a dub-dub might give you a bug.:eek:

    I've been reading the sharpening comments and instructions with interest. Very good information and worth trying; however, as for portability, strops, paint sticks, and tubes/tubs of diamond paste are not necessarily the way to go - at least for me. The DMT sharpeners as well as other brand sharpeners shown in the following picture are easily carried and will do the job on M390 steel. Of course the coarseness level is up to the user. There are many shown - coarse, medium, fine, etc..
