Re: history of knife sharpening
just bought a new case soft arkansas stone and bottle of oil.
also have a DMT coarse diamond stone that i use a lot for rough work
a large arkansas stone. i believe it's medium. the grain is coarser then the hard stone, and finer then the new soft stone.
then i have a couple small hard stones
and an ultra fine polishing stone i dont use much, although i do use it some
