I picked up a king 1000/6000 wet stone and just made a couple of strops. I've been practicing on some of my older knives and watched numerous videos on youtube on wetstones and stropping. This is addicting lol and I've been able to put a razor sharp edge on a few knives that glide through paper and can shave hair off my arm. I ordered some green chalk compound and the extra fine which is white. I bought the leather belts at home depot and had them cut the 2x4 in 2 foot sections. I'm using one for the gren, one for the white and one raw. Any other suggestions ?
