    Heh I’m the chap, could be it just needs the bevels set properly, I can do it in my wicked edge for you, easy to set it at 17 degrees per side, once it’s done properly a leather strop, made from an old belt, will keep it going unless you hit bone or stones with it, if you want I’ll do it, I can send it back with a bit of compound to keep you going on a strop.

    That's super hard steel right there. Id be definitely using diamonds.

    For checking the edge I use a Jewellers loupe. about $5 from aliexpress.

    Remove the burr by running it through some soft wood then strop on some newspaper or the 6k stone.
    Sometimes a piece of hardwood like oak or an old Hickory handle works well on a burr because of hard ridges in the wood. If the blade is getting a Burr then the steel can't be super hard, more likely 'tough'. I am guessing that the edge angle is too steep and needs ground back and correctly shaped as has been offered

    Even the harder knife steels will develop a wire edge but yeah tough is a good way to describe s30v. Very useful steel for Knife making

    He's using a lanksy so should be OK angle wise. Probably just needs more time to work the polish and remove the wire edge
