Ran across a couple videos today from smokeeater908...

First, a cut test with a WE sharpened knife...



Then he touches it up on the WE. (Note... no need to use diamonds)



Enjoy! ;)

Won't lie, I laughed at around 5:00 into the touchup video where he bonks the arms and drops it. I have a horrible tendency do to that same thing... :whistle:

I really can't get over how easy touchups are on the WEPS. I'm still debating the next addition to mine, but I know at least one or two sets of strops will be in it to supplement the cow leather 5/3.5 micron set I have now. Even with those two basic diamond pastes most of the time a touchup is just hitting it with the strops. At the worst I've gone back to the 1k diamond stone if I noticed a very dull spot.

That said I still haven't quite gotten crazy paper slashing edges for the most part but I'm not positive what contributes most to that sort of razor sharpness.

Just to be clear... I just posted 'em... didn't make 'em! :silly: They are good to learn from though... that's why I like to put them in the forum.
