Hi All
New here and new owner of the Pro Pack 1. I've modded it with washers and starbucks straws to eliminate all slop and feel like I'm good to go.

I'm wanting to take some of the tooth off after progressing to the 1000 grit plate. My plates are still new-ish and leaving lots of tooth. Will the supplied strops and compounds do the job after my diamond plates wear in a bit?
Or would I see some real benefit to buy the micro-fine stone set for use after the 1000 grit? I'm sharpening better quality Chef's knives with a typical claimed HRC of 58 - 62.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

The stones will wear in... and the strops will help. But you will see benefit from the Micro Fine stones. I did a post not to long ago that may help... wickededgeusa.com/index.php?option=com_k...rt=12&Itemid=63#4276

Let me know if that doesn't answer your question.

That looks about like what I'm after. I want arm-shaving sharp with the least amount of time invested.

What would be ideal is if the MF ceramics would remove much of the toothiness without giving me another burr to chase.

Thanks

Should be the ticket... I've been finishing knives with the Micro Fine fine,,, it's a great edge.

I agree with CBW. I have been using the MF stones to finish lots of knives recently and have been really happy with the results. I used them on my hunting knives that I took out last week and loved the edge they gave; it was super aggressive and very durable. Both the hunting knife and the camp knife are still shaving sharp after lots of use in the field. I won't go into all the gory details, but the hunting knife definitely did a lot of tough duty while the camp knife split wood, whittled stakes, cut rope etc... while I was out. I really like the fact that I can go right back to those stones for an awesome, 1 step touch up with minimal effort.

I'm close to pulling the trigger on the MF ceramics as a solution to my 'problem' but for the asking price I want to make sure I'm not buying a pocketful of aggravation.

So here's my question: my two ceramic honing rods load up quickly with swarf and have to be scrubbed clean with cleanser to restore the bite.

Same deal with these MF ceramics, or would I be pleasantly surprised?

Thx

Mike
