Hey guys! I just got a new "grit" wheel to replace my gritted paper wheel... I wanted to show you guys the difference in edges between this wheel and the wicked edge PRECISION sharpener :D

The wheel is a 120 grit diamond wheel (not sure of the matrix at this point). I used it with no lubrication free-handing it on the same place of the wheel as i drug the edge across it. It is very sharp and will pop hairs off of my arm w/ no issues. I removed the burr with the slotted paper wheel. Here is what it looks like...





Here is a knife I finished on the WEPS with the 600 grit diamond stones (if i remember correctly) and removed the burr with the same. WOW I love this toothy edge!

Before:


After:


I will say that the wheel is advertised as "120 grit" but when I feel it in reality it feels on the 400/600 grit level... It most certainly doesn't feel anywhere close to the 200 grit WEPS paddle.

The WEPS is the ONLY thing I sharpen my personal pocket knives on :D for obvious reasons!! Thanks for looking.
