Just picked up a dual-sided stopping paddle with Tormex stropping paste. Although I've searched this forum lightly, does anyone have any helpful tips for stropping?
(note: Tormex paste has already been applied to one side of the strop)
After stropping *away* from a knife edge, I noticed a minimal improvement in sharpness. Is this par for the course?
Stones that I normally use:
King or Mino 1000 stone
Norton 4000/8000 stone
MAC white ceramic rod (smoother)
Kyocera ceramic rod (more abrasive than the MAC)
I'll be sharpening a DTITK and DT CS petty, along with a MAC 8" gyuto and a CS deba. And some others...
So without ridicule, can anyone offer up basic tips w/ a paddle strop?
