I just bought one and noticed a slight recurve in the blades edge.
How hard (or not) is it going to be to sharpen with flat stones?

TIA

But two for rotation and just send them back to benchmade for sharpening

Flat stones would be a no-go unless you have the skill to sharpen using just the corner of the stone (I sure don't and, because you're asking the question, I assume you don't either) .  But a ceramic rod or 2 (a la Lansky turn box) would work well.  A Spyderco Sharpmaker would work great as well (using only the "corners" of the stones - of course).

Right. I was hoping since the curve was sleight, flat stones might work, with the right technique.  Researched it a little and you sounds like you know of what you speak.
Thanks again for your help.
