Howdy,

I am a long time collector of 1878 La Trompette knives as well as classic old Hickory, Dexters and Sabatier.

New to the sharpening field when I gained my late fathers rotary water stone but disliked its poor ability to make a shiny clean edge. So I found the solution in Japanese Waterstones and now I sharpen everything in the house. I have also developed quite a love for fixing my friends and relatives knives that have been long in need of reprofiling. I now go to antique/junk stores and sometimes just buy a box of knives to fix for fun.

Jet JWS-10 rotary water stone <-mostly unused unless repairing a very damaged knife

Hi, is the Suehiro cerax 5000 give a clean finish on single bevel?? For smooth slicing feel. I currently use cerax 1000 but for 5000 and above never use ceramic
