Hey everyone, I have decided to move on to waterstones for sharpening,
using the scary sharp system has become too tedius because of the length
of time it takes, I have tardive disconesia (a nerve disease) in my hands
and forearms, not good for the more finite muscle control and it hurts. I
read that waterstones cut much faster than anything else, which sounds
good to me.
I have been looking at stones online here and there, have seen the Norton
ones, and they seem too high in cost for the double grits though they are
the right width at 3". This would be good considering wider blades. With
those two stones, Craftsmanstudio.com will throw in the stone holder for
free. Still too much in actual dollars there at $99.50, but I have seen many
Japanese stones at really decent prices, in every grit and nominal size
Anyone have the ideal plan of purchase for budget and size I could follow,
for wider stones and decent quality? I don't know which stones wear down
faster or slower... "what sould I buy???"
