I finally got my K390 Endura dull enough to require sharpening. Freeing up the root balls of some spruce trees I was planting, I had to cut away a lot of wet burlap that was saturated with soil and sand. I didn't notice that it was also stitched together with heavy steel staples. I probably hit those staples several times while cutting through the burlap. Anyway the knife was seriously dull after that. To bring it back to paper towel slicing sharpness took 100 passes on the diamond rods of the Sharpmaker and then another 150 or so on the brown rods. I've been really enjoying the performance of this steel, but was concerned how difficult it would be to sharpen. Turns out it's not bad at all. Liking it even more now!
