That is a good price.I just looked at the reference and it fails to mention
flattening the back.
That is where I start, by getting the back side really flat, using a coarse
stone and following up with a finer stone.
If you thing about it the working end of that blade really needs to be a v
not a u. Hard to show using plain text.
I happen to use water stones but oil stones will work just as well.
I do have a little eclipse honing guide which will give better results for
having the same angle clear across.
Rule of thumb with yard sales, flea markets, estate sales, even Sam's
If you like it the first time you see it, buy it. 9 times out of 10 when
you go back to get it, someone else already has. (Sam's usually doesn't
carry the same "special" more than once.) DAMHIKT.
I still can't understand people buying $30,000 trucks to haul their $15,000
boats, using $100 of gas, to catch $5 worth of fish.
