How To Touch Up On A KME

One of the big disadvantages of using a sharpening system (except the V-Stick ones like the Sharpmaker), especially the clamped systems, is that it is difficult to do touch up sharpening:

This problem is a good reason to have freehand skills or a Sharpmaker. You only can refresh the edge so much on a strop, and I have found that the time between stroppings becomes shorter and shorter the more you strop, so eventually you just need to sharpen the knife. Same goes for steeling.
