just the basic 3000 and 8000 grit. 10000 grit for finishing. i try to keep it less than 15 degree angle all the time, so not only the edge is thin, but the body as well. it improves the durability of the sharpness. left and right, since they have double bevel.

 

 

I had a knife that was ground to around 13˚, which makes for quite an easy slicer.

Nice! That's most of what I collect and use these days as well. I have several dozen GEC's with a handful in regular rotation. 

 

Today I'm carrying a mid 1940s (est). Shapleigh HDW Diamond Edge barlow, and a new GEC beagle.

Nice Shapleigh.  Looks to be in very good shape for its age.  I love a good Barlow.

 

Anyone else collect Lagiuole?

I have a Laguiole copy, with damascus blade. The real thing's a little beyond my budget. The one above it is a Monnerie - another elegant French style.

I​ guess I should've expected as much entering a thread like this, but wow some of the blades in this thread are stunning.

 

And here I am excited about my Kershaw Scallion blade and it's easy open flipper!

Of all the knives in my collection the Spyderco Sage 2 is still my favorite EDC.  It's the perfect size for my needs, keeps a good edge, and is easy to deploy and close with one hand.  The carbon fiber doesn't chew up a pocket as badly as G-10 does, and the wire pocket clip is discreet.  I rarely carry anything else these days.
