Loren.. so true about the figure 8. I dished out my 220 stone really fast by not paying attention when I was doing a few chisels.. Doh! I must have removed a 1/8” of stone before I got it right again.

Cuttwice…. I’m a newbie as well into the scary sharp and stone world. I use a little of both systems now. I got the idea from a guy who was answering a post I had generated on this subject a while back. I still use 220 sandpaper for the initial bevel, then move over to the stones. The 220 stones get eaten up pretty fast when you are working on chisels. Always check your stones for flatness after they have soaked…...not before. I’m not sure if you know that already.

Have fun….. John
