    I've moved to Amsterdam and currently learning Dutch. Just bought my first Molybdenum recently and today a 3000/6000 stone. Excited

    Would anyone like to get together to teach and learn from one another?

    What kind of Moly is it?

    It comes overly convexed from factory, and should get a decent stone sharpening before you can maintain it. Let me know.

    By convexed, do you mean it isn't exactly a V and more like a U? If that's so, I would need to use a lower grit to take care of that?

    Again, let me know if I can help. I should have been clearer about that. You don't have to get a coarse stone for that very few strokes.

    Even better! I give Misonos a straight left bevel, very narrow, @15-17 degrees, and the right one convexed, ending @10-12 degrees. The factory edge is a bit fat. So start the right side at the lowest angle you're comfortable with, raise the spine little by little until you've raised a clear burr on the left side. Test for steering.

    Is anyone here interested in meeting up? I'm slowly improving my skills but would love to meet someone to compare and learn.
