      I've read most of the stuff on here that I can find, and have the following tools in addition to a file, but I can't get my edges as sharp as I want? They'll peel a little fingernail off, but when compared to professionally tuned edges it's not even close.

      What am I missing? What is your process? Do you recommend different guides?

      I'd recommend getting Diaface Moonflex diamond stones, they are more expensive but are far superior and last a long time. I've bought cheaper stones like the ones you have listed once in the past thinking it was a great deal and they are really really shit compared to pro level Moonflex. If you are on a budget I'd recommend just getting100/200/400. 800 and 1500 are superb for getting a silky mirror polish.

      I've got 5 different base bevels ranging from ToKo pro series World Cup to Toko vario multi base and the best one I find and use the most is the Fk SKS. Just fits in the hand perfectly and an absolute joy to use.
