Ok guys. I'm about 10 knives in and getting more and more impressed with the system. But unfortunately My kids ruined my .5 and 1 µm strops. Can't really say it was their fault it was mine for leaving them where they found them. My question is should I get the same strops again and then make more strops with the handles I have already? Or go with different strops? Also I was debating about getting the 1200 and 1600 grit ceramics. I have ceramics with my Propac two already they just say course in fine. I'm not sure of the grit progression on them. I'm not really sure if I want to get water stones because of the mess and cost. My ultimate goal is to sharpen as a small business within my community of friends and fishing partners. If that helps. As Leo Mitch would say let's see how far the rabbit hole goes!!!
