Welcome aboard John! The video was very well done. Look forward to perhaps seeing a video using your new WEPS. :woohoo:

Best regards

I will for sure make some videos,
Don't have any real nice blades yet just a few to learn on.
My Razor needs help. I hope to be using it again soon.
Thanks Jdee

Jdee, I've used my WE to refurbish some vintage razors that were in really bad shape. Clay has a video on YouTube showing how it's done.

Yes I seen that Video, I will need to order some extra stones I guess.
I ordered the Pro Package plus the Ceramics and extra course stones. I will most likely need the fine
water stones if I start doing many Razors.
Thanks Jdee

Welcome, Jdee!

You'll definitely want the water stones for your straight razors. Diamonds are great form making the foundation - the 600 WEPS should be more than enough, but I recommend the finer diamonds for setting a good bevel. I also highly recommend the 400 or 600 Chosera for cleaning the blade up after the diamonds, then a 1-2-3-5-10 Chosera progression followed by some .5 or .25 micron diamond spray on the leather, followed by the clean strops.

Some guys do use all diamonds, so you can also use the Wicked Edge pastes on the paddles, but I'm of the opinion you should go as high as you can on stones/plates before hitting the strops.

I don't know how experienced a sharpener you are, but razors require NO pressure at all - ever and you do not build a burr (yet it still needs to be sharp!). Good luck and enjoy your journey - it's just begun!

Yeah I'm thinking for my own hobby stuff:woohoo: , now I gotta work :lol:
Great friends though, got some real nice blades for the kitchen
Said they have a hard time sharpening with the normal gizmos and
can tell that their knives are out of wack.
I hope I can help them and learn.. I,ll be back bugging you all once
I get set up.
Thanks Jdee
