Taking my knives to a different level.

Thu Aug 01, 2013 1:04 pm

Hi Mark,

I have the 3 and 5000 Chosera stones and looking to take my knives to a different a level.

Would a strop kit do this for me or would i need a higher grit stone?

How do i use the strop kit? And do i need to purchase pastes to be able to use the strops?

Are the pastes diffrent levels of fineness? if so do i need both or just one type?

My knives I'm using are Masamoto VG-10s, Moritaka Yanagiba and Suisin Shironiko Yanagiba.

Thanks for your help

Regards
Franco

Hi Franco,

I'll be happy to help you. Tell me first how you sharpen a knife start to finish?

Also, please tell me your use habits with your knives. Are you a pro? Are you cutting onions all day? Home use? Do you like a toothy edge or a very refined edge?


We may be able to point you toward a different progression or give you some tips to improve what you are doing now. Then we can help you with some strops.
