Wow, that's pretty impressive. They're Arkansas oil stones? Where did you have them cut?

Yeah Dan, Please do a review. I am really curious as to what you find out with the oil stones?
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?

Thanks! I cut the stones myself. Im thinking that if I find a good combo of oil stones that work well then ill cut some for others because I know there's folks out there that only use these or just want to try something different. If fact the first knife I sharpened as a scout was on an oil stone.

Well, I'm pretty impressed by the results you showed us of the oil stones, compared to the diamond stones. If the oil stones cut at the same rate as the diamond stones... (do they?)

-with a wicked edge sharpened knife of coarse haha

My diamond stones are highly worn in. So far id say the coarse can replace the 80-200, medium replace the 400-800 and fine 1000-1600. I haven't really used much yet, only on two play around knives. Shallow scratches for sure
