    Jnat noob PSA - making mud

    Convex the nagura on a diamond plate, and then when you are raising slurry use the same motion you used to convex the nagura on the stone.

    Best edge for general purpose kitchen?

    +1 for aoto. The chosera 800 is one of my favorite mid grit edges too.

    Oh yes, the King 1K is King....

    About the mid grit kings. They will always have a special place in my heart. My first decent stone was the kw-65. I had some cheapo Amazon combo stones, the kind that come with a whole set with a base. Definitely don't ever waste your money on those. They are inaccurately rated, dish badly. If...

    My experience was different. The cerax dished much faster for me.

    Jnat noob PSA - making mud

    Saw you post in the discord (if that's you, I think it is) Anyway. One bit of advice that helped me with naguras was you do not want then to be flat at all. You want a curved surface. It stops the nagura from sticking. Convex the nagura on a diamond plate the same way you would convex a...

    This is the internet. Where are the cats?

    See this is why I started this thread. I don't know why some people are full of hatred, and cold hearted. But the ones that do things for animals like this, and actually care are what make up for those others. Thanks to everyone who decided to participate in this thread.

    Just Another Dam Project - Pass HHT on your kitchen knife

    I've been getting quite good results lately, and I feel I can thank this thread for it. One thing I will add though. Is I did this with stropping with green compound following all of these stones. HHT following the dmt coarse (about 325 grit) HHT following the dmt fine (if I had to guess...

    Sharpening crappy knives

    Also if the shapton doesn't cut it you can always order a bryxco manticore. It's a 60 grit sic waterstone.

    Sharpening crappy knives

    The shapton should do well on it. Just whatever you do don't lap it with an atoma 140, you need low grit sic powder. An atoma with completely glaze the surface, and it will act like a stone of a much higher grit.

    Old Stones

    Yeah it's (permasoaking) a game changer. I save mine for polishing mostly, but every now and then I'll get it out for edge bevels just for the feeling.

    Old Stones

    I think the king 1200 will make some fine fingerstones. I'm waiting to make some with my chosera 800. It may take a while though, I've been using my shapton a lot more often. I only use the chosera now if I'm going to be finishing on a medium grit stone. Though, now I have a green brick of joy...
