What's the best way to sharpen and maintain this?

This little knife comes up razor sharp with just the leather strop. I use the gray Bark River stropping compound first, then finish up with green stropping compound. I don't abuse my blades, but sometimes it happens. I have a set of Spiderco ceramic stones. They come in three grits and are meant to be used dry, so no water or oil messs. I wouldn’t bother with the Extra Fine grit. Medium takes off metal to bring it back then finish it off with the Fine stone. A few strops on the leather and you are as sharp as ever. My first strop was home made. Took an old leather belt and glued it to a piece of 1” X 2”. It works just fine. Recently i bought a double sided strop paddle on Amazon. One side is for green the other for gray. I like this rig the best. Since I started using the Grey Mediium grit compound and finish up with the green, I have not had to put any of my knives on a stone to bring them back.

To maintain the blade, I like the Syderco Sharpmaker ceramic rod sharpener.

From the tip to about the top 1" of the blade is ground all the way out to the spine. While the rest is Sabre ground, meaning the grind stops at a point before the spine, leaving a section of the blade to the spine the fill thickness of the blade stock.

Sorry for the late reply... Yes, Bradford Knives does make left handed leather sheaths that cost $10. Says they fit the 3 and 3.5 series. Or you can get a kydex to use either way. Hope that helps
