I was really impressed how well the Kevlar gloves protected against slicing and slashing. And they're quite cheap. However, they did very little to protect me from stabbing (which is what I bought them for - opening oysters).

And although they were not really uncomfortable, their interference was not really practical during sharpening.

And the chicken is dead.

A friend made this little stone holder for me. It is really handy as I can take them from the table over to the sink and give them a bath and put them back in the rack and then let them dry.


Sorry I thought I had figured out how to post a picture.
I'll go back to the drawing board?

Okay I give up. Can someone point me in the direction of how to post a pic?

When I purchased my WEPS PP 2, I did a lot of research to see what folks were using and pretty much use the same stuff you've mentioned.

For the cushioned rest though for the arms to lay on, I use a section of one of those dense foam " water noodles " like you get at Wal-Mart............they are cheaper than the cabinet or drawer liner, and when they get dirty, you simply toss it and cut another section and keep on trucking.

You can get approx. 5-6 sections out of 1 water noodle before having to buy another.( quote )

Mark and Phillip.......not sure how my post above got linked under ChrisFeher, but I am the one that actually did post that.........don't have a picture of the water noodles Mark, but if you go to Walmart, they usually have a box or bin of them in the middle of the isle near sporting goods........they are brightly colored rolls of foam, hollow in the middle, that kids use in the pool as a flotation device........and yes Phillip, this is what I position at the back or top edge of the baseplate and use to rest my arms / rods on so they don't bang into the quartzstone base. I am thinking though of cutting one of the noodles in half, and hot gluing the flat edge to the base so it doesn't move......a 1/2 section would still provide plenty of padding for the rods to rest on. :woohoo:

Hey Darrell, there was a problem with user accounts last month. I guess that is the reason. It should be solved by now, but I cannot change user names.
