My cousin sent me his new to him Bradley Alias II. Ghe previous owner stone washed the blade and wasn't the sharpest knife. So he sent it to me so I can sharpen it for him. I gave it to him this weekend at the family reunion. I removed the thumb stud because the stone was touching it. After I was done I went over to my golden retriever and grabbed a tuff of hair. This is the result.

Great idea on the golden retriever hair! I've got one of those with an extreme excess of hair :) Great job on the knife.

Great idea for those of us a little thin on top (and what I do have is cut pretty short) :silly: . But the dog and the cat leave plenty of hair everywhere!
Some of the edges I've sharpened on the WE

Thanks for all the kind words.

My hair is short and hard to grab to pull out. And I didn't want to risk getting to close with my fingers. His hair is so fine that it really isn't much thicker than mine. Every is surprised on how soft he is.


I did 50 strokes each side of the grits i have.. The blade is short enough I the length of it with one stroke, always in the same direction.

100, 200, 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1600. Then the 5 and 3.5 balsa strops.

At first I got 14/10 balsa strops and liked them so well I ordered 5/3.5 balsa strops they put a different cutting edge on then leather and roo? But my friends really like it on their steak knives and kitchen tools.
