As I understand the Razor Sharp system, it is a honing system you use similar to the leather honing wheel on the Tormex system. If you check their web site, it shows the wheels being used on a buffer, not a grinder. A grinder cuts into the metal to sharpen as observed above, but a honing wheel works by polishing the edge by spinning away from it—when you hone on a leather surface you pull the sharp edge away from the edge not push the edge into the leather surface. The Razor Sharp wheel needs to be turning away from the edge, not into the edge as the latter will cause the blade to catch/cut into the wheel and be thrown downward. Also, if you’re not clear on how to use the Razor Sharp Wheel, the web site has a telephone number and I strongly recommend you call and make sure you understand how to use the wheel as cutting into the wheel as it rotates towards the edge could result in a nasty accident.
