Hi there,

I've decided to take the plunge and buy the Wicked Edge. I am trying to work out the best option that is within my budget.

I don't care about shiny/polished edges - I just want a sharp knife. :)

Which of the below options would you recommend?

1. Wicked Edge + 800/1000 diamond stones + 5/3.5 micron strop

or

2. Wicked Edge + 1200/1600 ceramic stones + 5/3.5 micron strop

or

3. Something else?


(Hoping Clay or someone from WE will pitch in here).

Thanks.

IMO, the logical choice is the 800/1000 stones plus the mentioned strops and paste.I suspect that when one thinks of the edge keenness alone, that set of grits makes the most sense in the development of the bevel.

I think the pro kit is what you are looking for.

+1 on the pro kit. You will get a shiny edge with very little micro serrations and a start of a mirror polish. Then just add the ceramics later and you can further polish you so wish.

Ahh.. good point guys. I should have checked the contents of the Pro kit for hints on the most practical progression of stones.

Wicked Edge + 800/1000 diamond stones + 5/3.5 micron strop it is!! :)

Thanks for help.

PS. Buying the pro kit is not an option for me - shipping marble to Australia is going to be expensive. Will just have to find something to bolt the kit down onto.

The pro kit ships with paperstone. It is very light.
