Passaround thread now up, open the EU, USA and Canada we can sort the logistics out as we go:D
Will, do you strop the blade after 1k rather than finish on higher grit stones with this steel. I' m fairly new to the forum but I'd loved to be included on a list of pass a rounds. I'll leave a deposit . I like idea and function of a broad blade with the precision the hollow ground might afford .
Sorry mate, missed that one. I do like to get carried away so I tend to take the edge all the way, strop it at the end with a 1k stone to give it some bit or 1 light pass, then strop as required. If it gets blunt or over stropped, touch it with the 1k again.
Hey Lefty, that board is a piece of apple wood, Its pretty soft but its stood up surprisingly well, It warped a bit but has not moved any more.
