I get and understand stones for the most part, but I don't claim to be any type of guru.
Most of it all started from shaving with a Straight razor many many years ago, dad word working, etc.
But finger stones I don't know a thing about or how they are used?
I did search but nothing is explaining this to me.
Thanks in advance,
Maksim has this on his Wiki at Japanese Natural Stones:
I did check out teh JNS site on this, but its vague on the actual reason?
Great you do this, that, glue it, but I need the how come?
Like 240 stone: cut steel fast,
10K polish hone, etc......
One reason: If you've ever tried to put a flade surface on a flat stone, you'll know that it usually isn't completely flat, so it leaves variations in the finish on the knife. Fingerstones often help to even out the polish of a singel bevel or a wide bevel, where you care about aesthetics since they conform to the high and low spots on the bevel.

Whoops. I just noticed all my typos. Sorry! That's what I get for typing from my phone. Is there a way to edit notes?
Who cares about the typos as long as the points are clear, and they where. Believe me 5 years as a support manager I don't even look at it ;)
