The CBN stones I bought did not have an aluminum plate. Owner of Practicalsharpening told me not needed, he's right.
Ya, I've looked at the Bess tester... I'm good with the Rizla test. Get an edge to crosscut/push cut, very very fine edge.
I finally got my Rizla papers to use as sharpness testers. I thought it was a little funny that they came from England labeled as a "Children's Toy"! ;-D
I would have never realized how good a test they were for super sharpness until I tried them. Thank you again for the recommendation! Just seeing your pictures I don't think most people realize how hard it is to cut such a thin paper cleanly. I've never smoked weed or loose tobacco so I had no idea about the papers. I didn't have any idea of how good a sharpness tester they were until I tried them at your recommendation.
It did remind me of a funny story. I used to be a pretty serious Armor Modeler and I was looking for fine screen to use as a vent cover on one of my Tank Models. After I couldn't find any fine enough at the hardware store one of my buddies suggested I check the local head shop for Bowl Screen. So we went to the local head shop and I walked up and asked the old half wasted psychedelic dude behind the counter if he had any brass bowl screen available. He said he did and asked what size I wanted. I held my hands out in a circle and asked him if he had any in 8 inch diameter...... His eyes widened and he looked up at me like I was a Prophet!! ;-D ;-D
Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................
Cool you got the Rizla papers! Makes a great test media. I've given a few packs away to other sharpeners. Hey bud, wants some rolling papers?!
Good story going into the pot shop.
This is the sharpest knife in our house, Watanabe Aogami #2. Just re-sharpened it. Sharpens easy compared to the V's. Shapton 500, Chosera 1000, Shapton 5K, 8K a few passes with 1/.10 micron strops. Silly wicked sharp. Fun Stuff!
Sure would like to have a knife like this in a super steel. Creely has offered chef knives in Rex 121, maybe I'll give him a call!
