    I hope the wheel he is using isn't beat up as bad as the one behind him.

    Those photos of the sharpener are quite a story. Really amazing.

    I am picking up a stone from about 30+ years ago. One of my friends got it from one of his buddies and he used it for years for kitchen knives and axes. It's motorized and has a water bath underneath it. Wheel is around 20" in diameter, maybe a bit more and around 1.5" wide. I will get pics once I get it!
