Maintenance Purchase Help!
Ok so I'm looking to improve my edges beyond what I've been able to do thus far. I need to significantly improve my burr removal and get a better polish to my edge. Eventually, I will purchase all of the materials I am about to list but my finances are tight (line cook's curse) and I want to buy the materials that will best serve my purposes for the time being.
I currently have a 500 Beston, 1K Minosharp, and 5K Suehiro Rika. I am trying to decide if I can improve burr removal by adding both a Kitayama or Takenoko and a felt block (not strop but the block offered by Dave) OR go with option b: a leather stropping system with a felt pad and a felt block. So...for the line cook on a budget...which do you guys think would serve my purposes more effectively?
