Hi guys. Well I pulled the trigger on a Pro Pack 2. I wasn't planning on getting the full system until I found out about the generous Military discount that is offered by WE. So I went all in with the PP2 kit, case, and Chosera 2k/3k stone set. I look forward to learning on this system. I have an older Edge Pro system (messy) and never really loved the system due to the design and mess. I currently have a Sharpmaker, Norton waterstone set and DMT diamond plates. This system should keep me busy for quite some time. Will have to dig out some old kitchen knives to try out the new system, before I start on the real knives.

Welcome aboard Jetech!!

You're gonna love it. Start collecting data on how much to sell that other stuff for. I bought a new Sharpmaker (to replace my very old one) just before buying my WEPS. I even bought a pair of the coarse diamond triangles and a pair of their super-fine triangles, but I don't think I've used it since.

My biggest problem is that I don't have any knives I'd try sharpening on the triangle stones, 'cause they all have perfect WE bevels and why would I mess with them? Come to think of it, I do have one old knife I made with a blade from CVA, about 1978. I think I'll go downstairs and wreck it.

Hi Jetech! Welcome to the forum.

You're gonna love your WEPS, I'm sure! When it arrives, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Oh, and the Sharpmaker (I also had one before I got the WEPS)... you could try selling it on one of the knife forums.

Thanks for the welcome. First question. I am getting the Pro Pack 2 this week which comes with the 1.4/0.6 ceramics. I also ordered a Chosera 2k/3k stone. Most grit charts I can find don't list the 1.4/0.6 stones but instead list the 1200/1600. Can anyone shed some light on where the Chosera will fit in progression from a diamond 1000?

Thanks.

You really probably need the 800's to speed things up, but you can go to the 2k choseras directly from the 1k diamonds. It may take more time. Make sure to rub them together frequently to clean them and provide slurry which will improve the cutting action of the abrasives. Keep us posted!

So where in this progression do the ceramic stones come into play? After 3K Chosera and before stropping? Thanks for the reply Josh.
