    Shingata Akamon 1k or Red brick 1k experiences?

    The akamon is a soaker stone. Every time. I'd leave it submerged personally Surprised you dislike the king 300. I will admit though mine did need a good lapping ootb. Had a very friable surface contrary to what everyone said of it. Once past that layer it's probably my favorite water stone

    I know edge leading will lead to micro chipping as the grit particles are going to be proud from the surface. But taping the spine....... If you are supposed to lay a razor flat on a stone then obviously the spine is your angle holder. If the edge moves towards the spine but spine thickness...

    I agree with the above post. Everyone does things differently and that is not laughable. person I think using a coticule is ridiculous as I can do it in 1/10 the time with other means. Doesn't mean one way the other is wrong. I am still in the strong camp that taping the spine is absolutely...

    1st pistol

    I will agree with an above post to not forget about a good revolver. Bullet shape or power level don't affect it. Doesn't jam. If there's a failure with a round just squeeze the trigger for the next one. And if it's not dead in five or six shots you're in trouble

    Oh I'm honestly wasn't looking for a fight or an argument. It was just a little ambiguous to me anyway what was meant as either a positive or a negative when you quoted me

    Best edge for a beater knife?

    60 grit is fine. You're removing metal to remove chips and a thick edge. You want as course of a belt as you can find. They grind faster and cooler. 36 grit is even better!

    Good idea it is time to give up. One day you should get yourself a belt grinder just for this type of work. They are very handy

    Looking to buy my first knife...

    I'd go with a jck nature's blue moon. Nice and thin with a blue core and stainless sides. Very pretty, and nice handle. Very affordable. Edge retention has been good
