    This is my intense onion dicing this evening. In my defense, I did have the added challenge of salvaging my wife's onion leftovers. :p Munetoshi 210.

    Whats cooking? **** Making something fine and fancy?** Just plain good? Show us!

    I'm terrible about cookbooks as I never really cook the recipes in them anyway. I just browse them and use them for inspiration or to get me in the ballpark.

    Anyone have a good educational resource for scissor and shear sharpening?

    I know for high end hair scissors they sell specialized machines and jigs. Like you all, for me, that has always been a voodoo art best left to a pro so I've never really found good info on that either. I remembered that Dean O doesn't post on YouTube anymore but he made some good videos on...

    This real focus on thinning and polishing is new to me. I was hoping to keep some convexing, or at least not ruin it. You noticing is a boost of confidence. Stone had very little mud.

    Yes to both. Didn't do much polishing as I'm easing in but just this stone for that and refining the OOTB edge.

    Those looks real nice and I was close to going that route. Might do it on the next one.

    You can strop on most anything. From newspaper to cardboard to paint stirring sticks. You can try to drip your stone slurry onto whatever you choose to use. That said, a bar of Chromium Oxide whish is essentially a lifetime's supply, is pretty cheap. EDIT: And I meant to let the slurry dry.

    Dyeing Ho Wood Handles?

    All done. BEFORE: AFTER: Just a light but nice reddish tint. This reminded me that with these soft woods, you loose a lot of color from soaking in and then sanding. I thought about going darker but decided I like it this way.
