Ken, a small ziplock would work great. I like to keep a pair in one bag. I always put the "Fine" side in, facing each other, then use a rubber band to keep them in place. That way, any paste that gets on the bag only has a chance of getting on the coarse side, which is where it belongs.

Ah, very nice. Yes rubberbanding them that way is a great idea!

Yeah, I fought "heavy hand" for years. Finally (kinda) broke myself of it when I drifted into straight razor shaving 8-10 years ago. That was also where I got hooked on PSA diamond films. Much better edges on my razors than I ever got with loaded strops. Really want to see some glass paddles to use the PSAs with!

By the way, Zig, where did you get my picture? That was back in my youth when I was MUCH better looking!

Cheers,

Ken

I'll use this as an opportunity to introduce myself as well. My name is Wayne, and I spent much of my life in Calgary, Alberta Canada, in the aviation industry. I retired two years ago (freedom 55 as they say) and two weeks later was on my way to Regina Saskatchewan, following my wife who was transferred here.

My first pocketknife was given to me at age 6, some 52 years ago by my Grandfather. The year after, he began to teach me to sharpen it on stones, something I've been "learning" to do ever since. I've gotten pretty good at it with 50 years of practice, however just when I was starting to get comfortable with the whole freehand sharpening thing, arthritis started to put a "cramp" in things, literally and figuratively.

I've two hobbies; knife collecting and photography. I currently have around 80 knives in my collection, virtually all users. I don't believe in shelf queens, so I need to be able to sharpen efficiently, so I've just ordered my first WE system and am waiting for it to arrive.

Isn't retirement great! Welcome aboard Wayne! Sounds like quite a collection of knives and hopefully you will use your photographic skills to show us your knives. Your WEPS will be well used eh mate! Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Best regards
