I have just recently joined the forum .
I like knives , kitchen and general knives although I do not particularly like daggers or knives aimed purely for offence.
I sharpen knives principle with an Edge pro and since I have had it I have bought various knives to learn on : since I sharpen for both yachts & restaurants .
Since having the EP I have bought Kai Shun , Carbon Sabatier , Bodum Ceramic, Seki Cut , Chroma , Mac & Global . Then I have folding knives buy Giles in stainless & carbon damascus and a Rockstead. This has made me learn not only the finer uses of the EP but also how to sharpen on fine wet & dry sandpaper on a mouse pad to produce convex edges . Then I have done those on the EP by choosing a 5 degree spread between the secondary bevel and the micro bevel dropping back a degree at a time and then stopping out the graduations.
So in an effort to expand my skills I bought a Nubatama Sharpening Set so for the last four days I have been sharpening about 1 or 2 knives a day to get the knack . I have followed videos primarily by Korin which gave me a method then I have looked at the videos on CKTG and Global they all have something to offer mentions of sound , pressure and where to put fingers etc.
I have been able to produce shaving sharp from scratch although my method is still evolving and I have often to slow down . I have worn down the pads on two fingers to the extent of drawing blood and now it is a question of more practice and further refinement.
My sharpening arsenal consists of a Tormek . Edge Pro (pro) , Spiderco Sharpmaker , small angled Arkansas stones that I use for some of my leatherworking tools , strops leather & denim , the Nubatama stones and I have a Wicked Edge on the way . Most of these systems have their limitations or drawbacks (although Clay 's Wicked Edge is an on going development which will one day do all things ) which is why I have tried to incorporate them all so that I should rarely be presented with something I cannot do . The Nubatama stone are mainly for my own knives and I feel that if I claim to be a knife sharpener then it is a discipline I cannot ignore.
I have found with the aid of videos learning how to use the stones and has been relatively easy but I think this is largely to do with experience I have gained with the Edge Pro I know what to look for and what sharp is .
So I think I have CKTG & Jende Industries to thank for these stones in my limited experience I would say they are quick to use and I feel it wont be long before I have a go at my recently acquired Mac Deba (thanks CKTG for a hugely dicounted Mac big Deba with an extremely minor handle issue which was what pushed me into getting the stones).
