Ok, I found out what the issue is with the Ontario 18" machete. The reason I am having problems getting it to shaving sharp is that it is burring very easily at the edge apex, and the burr is very small so it is hard to feel. I think a micro-bevel should fix the issue. I got my other machete, the Gavilan de Incolma shaving pretty easily, but the same techniques didn't work on the Ontario, although if felt really sharp, it just wouldn't shave.
