Well, now that I am hooked on the pursuit of all things ever-sharper, yesterdays Amazon delivery was my x-mas gift to myself. OK, at least one of them.
Some general additions to the Ďkití are a few more Kangaroo strops, for various Schwartz emulsions, a low-profile set of jaws for the KME rig to enable doing pen knives, a small bottle of 0.1 micron CBN (just because) and a micro-fibre strop for 1 micron stropping.
I also picked a number of various types of stones, such as:
- Chinese Bluestone, rated at 5000g
- Baikalite, rated at 8000g
- Idahone, rated at 800g
- Belgian Bluestone, rated at 3-4000g
- Sungari, rated at 4000g
- still waiting for the Jasper stone to ship, which is rated in the 10-12kg range.
Already switched out the low-profile jaws and mounted my dadís old pocket knife, so letís see what this stuff can do.
