For your entertainment... this is me after some sharpening today. Sometimes i get into that "tribal" look ;) And when its all done, I use our JKI Soap to clean up

That is awesome. The swarf on your nose makes that a picture worthy of Steeley's archives in 100 years.

its funny because i dont pay that much attention to when my hands are black like that, so i scratched my nose... then sara runs over and takes a picture of me out of the blue. I was like, "what the hell is going on", so she told me to go look in the bathroom. There was a lot more black on my face then when we took the picture you see here.

Hmmm. I may need that soap! When I work with epoxy, I tend to get dust everywhere and I end up with dust epoxied to my skin and I gotta try to scrub it off. I had some sort of gritty hand cleaner, but ran out. Looks like this stuff may be on my list!

The tribal look is awesome.
I'm sure the soap is good, too.

I haven't made a JKI purchase yet so that soap has been on my wishlist for as long as I've been browsing. :/ I'm seriously considering changing that in the near future though.

Jon - do yo ever worry about metal contamination through the skin and around finger nails?

I know this may sound like a paranoid concern, but there is some evidence out there that suggests that coming into contact with metals - especially when metal is heated, as in using a mteal pan to cook - can have negative health impacts.

I tried wearing nitrile gloves, ala Curtis, but that doesn't work very well. I can't feel the edge to tell what I'm doing. The glove will eventually get caught between the edge & stone and rip/cut, and then the metal swarf gets on my fingers anyway. So I gave up on that idea...
