The specific issue here is that the 1200 ezelap makes a wire edge. I didn't apparently remove it as completely at the corners of the iron, just on the 3V. The center as I recall just left without issue, so I am probably troubling over nothing. IF there was wire edge left on the portion of the iron that did the cutting, it would've shown up on the microscope as it's unlikely it would've been perfectly uniform.

I examined the center inch and a quarter or so of each iron after sharpening for the test, but I didn't examine the corners.

It may just be a minor annoyance.
