I’ve been trying to do some research on the web, but I am getting conflicting results about how the grits of various sharpening products relate to one another.
I currently have one sharpening stone and it is a “Smith’s abrasive 750 grit diamond stone”. It seems fine. It gets me to a better than factory edge, but I don’t think it sharpens enough. I use one of those simple rolling jigs that cost about $10.
Sometimes I go from that to the scary sharp method, but I have some personal reasons for why it doesn’t work well for me (don’t have thick enough plate glass, sandpaper is always getting damaged before use, no spray adhesive, etc).
I’d like to try some of these king stones that are on sale at woodcraft (see the bottom of the page for the combination stones):
After all this rambling, here are my two questions.
Any help would be appreciated.
