Try vinegar 1st as that is prob the safest.

Sure, it'll definitely be the safest. However, most knives I sharpen are made of stainless steel. And these knives withstand vinegar quite nicely.

As BLD said Vinegar takes forever at elevated temperatures.

Below are a couple of Youtube videos where you can see the effect on different grades.

Hydrochloric Acid
Sulphuric Acid

Thought I might add M0DiFiEDZ recent video here.

"How To Clean Your Stones With A Cheap $50 Ultrasonic Cleaner"



Does it look to be the best option out there?

I was under the impression Clay said NOT to use an ultrasonic on the diamond stones... or was it the ceramics he said that about...

It wasn't me, it was BassLakeDan in this post: Diamond Stone and Strop Care - www.wickededgeusa.com/index.php?option=c...=3101&Itemid=63#3102. Suddenly my edit toolbar is missing which I'll have to investigate. For now, you can copy and paste the link into your address bar.
