I know this isn’t a pissing contest. I didn’t take it that way at all.
I get my PSA backed paper from Lee Valley. It comes in long rolls, 2.5” wide, and that width is all I need for sharpening purposes. So, if I change paper even 3 times a year, it works out to pennies per year, or maybe even as much as a couple of dollars. Even if I were to use more than that, I wouldn’t spend $100 in 20 years.
Add to that the cost of the Veritas jig, and the plate glass (that I got for free), I’m still spending very little to get great results.
Add to that, it’s fairly clean…I blow off the dust with my compressor when I’m done, and I never have to flatten a stone. I’m not trying to convert anyone…Just relating my personal experience.

Your pup is a cutie too, and very fashionable with the hat. I had a chocolate before the black. He’s getting old now (10+), and I see a yellow lab in my future.
