Topic tags/keywords: sharpening sigma stone

I’m interested in a 6,000 and 13,000 sigma sharpening stone. I’m trying to figure out what’s better the sigma power or the sigma select II for planes/axe/carving knife?
select II:

Also I read that these can be used without soaking by just using some soapy water when sharpening?

Anyone use these? I think i’ll use DMT for low grid then shapton 1000 before moving to the sigma’s and strop

Oh and I was originally looking at the spyderco Ultra Fine as it got a lot of good reviews from the knife guys but I think the sigma’s are better for woodworking?

I have the set that he offers.

Just don’t be in a hurry to get the stones. I think mine took a month to get to me.
