I’m sure this topic has been beaten to death and I apologize for that but I wanted to get a feeler out there for two sharpening systems I’m considering. I’ll be sharpening plane irons and chisels mostly and want these sharpening “kits” to last a long time. That being said, I’ve narrowed it down to DMT DuoSharp for the lower grits and Norton waterstones for the higher grits. Here are the two sets I’m considering:
2) http://www.sharpeningsupplies.com/DMT-10-DuoSharp-Diamond-Kit-P435C24.aspx with the 4000/8000 stone http://www.sharpeningsupplies.com/Norton-Combination-Water-Stones-P28C4.aspx
Can you please provide your input on what you’d get if money wasn’t an issue? I know the first set is more expensive but I’d like to get the right one right away and not worry about cost up front.
Also, for the waterstones, do you keep yours submerged in water when not in use?
