I could use some help identifying the flaw(s) in my plane iron sharpening technique… when honing a microbevel, the microbevel doesn’t want to “make it” all the way to the edge of the iron. It looks like the edges just don’t contact the stone… like the iron has a camber to it even though there shouldn’t be one.
I started again from scratch to see if that would help. I reground the iron, checked it for square, flattened my 1000 grit waterstone, and used my Vertitas Mark II honing guide (straight roller), and I got the same results. I am seeing this on all irons I sharpen including higher end irons like Lie Nielsen or Veritas.
Any ideas what might be going on?
