i figure if jnat have better 'feel' then my technique would be more efficient hence fewer mess ups even if it cuts slower. in the long run my sessions would be quicker, besides it's only for finishing and touchups so shouldnt take long to begin with right?
chuck, could you elaborate on 'too high'?
im a little confused on what bieniek does. he stops at binsui but uses mud built up from higher grit naguras as a combo type deal?
my goal is to have a very aggressive edge with retention being vastly more important than refinement. hence 2k target grit if that makes any sense? for reference, i stop at king 1000 on house knives. currently stopping @ synthetic 3k for my knives.
