We're going to start carrying these again soon. Hopefully next week.

I've got some new and unique stuff in the works right now. I'll reveal it as we're ready.

I do love the Chosera stones for the WEP system. Just as many have found using them by hand they are great stones that will leave a beautiful mirror edge on a blade. With a controlled angle machine like the WEPS they also give a very sharp and useful working edge at the 10K level. With a few stroke from the leather with some of Ken's compounds it becomes even more impressive.

I will be interested to see what other innovations you have for this system. I would love to see soem of Kenn's Kangaroo and Nano cloth strops that are readily available.

BTW, Clay got a 2000x optical microscope. Soon we will be able to see what is really going on when we sharpen with various stones, and compare the abrasion patterns, even to the sub-micron level. This is really exciting!!

This has probably already been covered so I apologize for repetition.

I use an Edge Pro but would like to know more about the Wicked Edge system. This thread concerning different stones on the WE made me think of a question. With the EP you can get stones and attach them to aluminum blanks, easily providing a very large selection of stones even when they aren't sold specifically for the EP. You can buy the blanks or the aluminum blank material is available at Lowe's in 3' and 4' lengths of different widths also. I get this and cut my own blanks. Very inexpensive. My question is can you easily get stones and mount them for the WE? Would you need to buy mounting blanks or can they be made at home?

Wicked Edge sells blank paddles on which you can mount anything you want. Ken's roo or nancloth strops, your own stones, etc. You just have to make sure they are the right size.

The Chosera's for the Wicked Edge are great, by the way, like Philip wrote. Shaptons can be provided by Ken. And I've seen various Naniwa's offered on the Wicked Edge forum.
