Knife Sharpening / Leather wheel polishing
« on: June 01, 2019, 07:14:12 pm »
Hello there !

Even if I am a real Newbie in the Tormek community, I've been sharpening for a couple of years (decades ... D'oh  )

I've been using a leather wheel and a leather strop for years. I love it as I really had great results.

Now, the question : the Tormek wheel is "inside out", meaning the inner side of the skin is outside. I used to work the other way round, always using the "soft" side of the skin.

Besides, I use a Cr203  compound I prepare myself, based on Cr2O3 powder and some vaseline fat.

I always got very sharp edges.

Now I wonder ...

Was I wrong ? Could I get better ?

Your comments are most welcome.

Rgds.
