What material is the actual disc you sharpen the tool with? Some sort of stone? My lathe has a 5” disc attachment (I put 5” sticky back disc sander pads on it and use it as a disc sander). Would love to find a better way to sharpen my knives than a whetstone.

Oh ok, I’ve never thought to try something like this, I’ve just been using a whetstone, which is fine and works well, but takes a long time, and as all of my knives are a minimum of 40 years old (4 or 5 of them have handles turned by my great-grandfather) they are in pretty rough shape. I’m afraid to try to re-edge them though, as I have no experience doing so.
