First, what do you care if oldtimers scoff at your method? If it gets your tools sharp, it works. I have a wet, slow speed sharpner, a high-speed grinder, and a $7 roller jig. Like Purp-lev and others, I use them all. Mostly I use the roller and sandpaper on mdf. Really bad edges I start with 120, get the bevel right, then come up through the grades to 2000. Make sure the back is flat and polished, and be careful. I didn’t realize how sharp they were till last night. My finger will heal in about a week. The one thing to remember; the MORE YOU SHARPEN, THE LESS YOU WILL HAVE TO SHARPEN. In other words, don’t wait until theyre beaten to death; use a while and sharpen a while. Less work and more consistent service.
