I recently became aware of your site and I very impressed with your selection and customer support. I found your site when I was looking for stropping solutions for my EdgePro, I love the polishing tapes but like the idea of stropping. I have a strop-bat but just cannot seem to get the hang of free-hand stropping. So, in browsing your site I have run into a few questions before I make my order.
Some of my original EP stones are rather concave, is there a coarse stone that would work for both levelling my EP stones, and to use as a coarse grit stone on my EP? Like this but ideally in the 1" width, http://www.chefknivestogo.com/dmt2x6diplfo.html
Is a quality high grit stone, like the Chosera 2,000 grit stone, going to provide the same result as the 2,000 grit polishing tape? And if so, would you recommend the Chosera or the Shapton in the ~2000 grit range?
I was thinking that one of your Kangaroo leather strops for the EP, combined with some 3 micron dia-paste might be another good alternative, would this provide a similar experience to the 2,000 grit polishing tape?
I am really looking for a solution for:
Touching up my edge and maintaining that "just sharpened" cutting ability.
And, a coarse stone that will set the angle quickly on hard steels, not concave, and could help to level my existing stones.
Any recommendations you have would be greatly appreciated and I look forward to my order.
Thanks for your time.
