    I have been sharpening knives via stone for over 45 years and will try something new to get my knives to the next level. I have a work sharp knife sharpener to help this clumsy fool when I am not doing good with knives on sharpening stone. I played with stropping last weekend for the first and it takes edges to the next level. I have came close to this via stone but Stropping takes my sharpening to new level. I found out the hard way of course and how else will I learn. No worries-still have my finger but just an extra precaution. I am purchasing Kevlar body suit with I try this on my axes. Have a good week!!!

    Yeah. I have to confess that sharpening is the only way I have cut myself in the last 20 years.

    I had to be just as careful after picking up a new honing stone recently. Thankfully the only things getting cut are slabs of beef in the kitchen.

    I would love to get my hands on a good set of wet stones and that stone that sharpens and polishes at the same time. I don't know the name all I know it's small and you can use it on the very High Grit stone. I also love my leather strop it does take your knife to the next level.

    My last touch on a stone is 6000 grit and does a really good job on Scandi grinds
