I have to admit, I am not completely migrated to freehand sharpening. I have an Edge Pro - Pro and I get some pretty nice results with it. I would like to try some other stones on it and cutting them myself seem like an intriguing idea and challenge in and of itself. I'm thinking a decent tile saw that will cut wet. Soaking ahead for stones that are soakers. And then jumping in to see what happens. I anticipate some learning and I am prepared for that. Might end up with a handful of rock chips? Maybe nice 1x6 stones I can mount to blanks for use on the EP?
Would love to hear any thoughts on this process or even better if you have tried it what worked for you and what didn't?
