I'm seeing a fair number of these online, but I dont know enough about them to make a particularly informed decision about their quality. In the past I always just used an Arkansas stone as I thought strops were a razor only thing (I've learned the error of my ways now haha). What would you recommend or what do you use? I am planning on getting rouge (white and red) and the black oxide stuff. Also, I've never used a diamond hone, and my mentors always told me they were just expensive gimmicks. Then again, they also told me strops were only for razors and a machete should be dull, so I'm thinking it's probably time to address some areas of potential ignorance. Do you use a diamond hone, and is there anything it does that your whetstone doesnt?
