    Wow, very nice Robin. How much time did it take you to get from 400 grit to 3000. And what equipment did you use?

    About three hours from 600 I think. Foundation work is key, and as hard backing you can. Rhynowet paper is balls... And this is what my setup looks like:

    Edge and bevel is finished on stones and sharp, before polishing.

    That's weird. I get HTTP error 500: www.kitchenknifeforums.com is unable to handle this request.

    I have no clue why you can view it and I cannot, bkultra, but thanks a lot for posting it.

    Robin, if more people have this problem (do you guys, or is it just me?) You may want to use an external hosting company, like Photobucket. What are we seeing in this pic, Robin, except for a large knife?

    Pictured is the clamp setup I use. For backing I use a radiused wood paddle for the hollow section, steel bar for the flats, rubber backing for finishing strokes. I wrap rhynowet sandpaper around these backings and do it wet (water).

    For refinish a knife with handle I prefer something rubber to wrap paper around, and usually just hold the knife against some cardboard on a table.
    Worth mentioning is that it pays off to go through the sandpaper quickly, they dull quickly.

    Since someone said my knives looked like they would stop diced onion from climbing my böades the other day, I decided to try a geometry for that on this chuka prototype, I'll probably tweak some more, but generally I liked it. 195x100, 470 grams.
