Just saying hi! Ordered the PP2 in mid feb looking forward to getting it. Plan to use it almost exclusively for my food prep knives. I like a very sharp cooking knive and I use them on a daily basis. I have some Globals, some Shun as well as some older Henkel's and a new high carbon steel Sabitier. Like most of you guys I have been fascinated with sharp knives all of my life.
I have done quite a bit of woodworking with hand tools so I learned a lot about sharpening and steels. Lots left to learn. One breakthrough I had was with constant angle jigs (eg Tormek) they are great for sharpening plane blades..but too aggressive for fine knives. I looked for a similar set up for my knives and found EP and WEPS. I decided on WEPS mostly because I prefer diamond stones to the water stones for the work I have done in the past. I do prefer water stones to the oil stones and I think water stones are for the true connisure. I just like the 'get down to business' of the diamond stones.
I don't have a lot of time to spend on these boards, but I thought it a good idea to say hello in case, when I do get my WEPS, I have questions or run into trouble. Take care..
