Great info. One question though. In the video TaraShevchenko made a point out of not going to the apex because it would leave nicks that were hard to remove and I am not sure how you would use a flat stone, especially one that aggressive and not file all the way up the bevel to the apex. If you are filing a new profile, won't the 50/80 kind of automatically make the V shape from the bottom to the top of the new edge a flat edge including the apex?

Other than that point, it seems like the 50/ 80's are a great addition to the pro kit.

When you reprofile, the stone contacts near the shoulder, and moves up toward the edge as you grind in the new bevel. You'll see it in the scratch pattern. So, you stop before the scratches reach all the way to the edge... switch to the 100g stones, and finish the reprofile.

You'll see when you do it. ;)

Just wanted to clarify that it is not my video, just posted it because this guy jdavis seems to know what he is talking about and you can see quite clearly the stones themselves

Makes sense, can't wait to get my hands on this system to start experimenting. I may have to go to my local target or K Mart to buy some cheap knives to experiment on and to break my stones in on. I guess the best thing to do is get a set of kitchen knives and just hack away on some rocks and wood and cardboard so I can bring them back and reprofile them.
