Passaround thread now up, open the EU, USA and Canada we can sort the logistics out as we go
Will, do you strop the blade after 1k rather than finish on higher grit stones with this steel. I' m fairly new to the forum but I'd loved to be included on a list of pass a rounds. I'll leave a deposit . I like idea and function of a broad blade with the precision the hollow ground might afford .
Sorry mate, missed that one. I do like to get carried away so I tend to take the edge all the way, strop it at the end with a 1k stone to give it some bit or 1 light pass, then strop as required. If it gets blunt or over stropped, touch it with the 1k again.
Hey Lefty, that board is a piece of apple wood, Its pretty soft but its stood up surprisingly well, It warped a bit but has not moved any more.
