rock hard felt wheel
« on: December 13, 2020, 05:47:34 pm »
I just watched a YouTube video about sharpening serrated knives. The demonstration used a double-beveled rock-hard felt wheel to de-burr the serrated areas.
After checking the Tormek site as well as Amazon, I can't find such an item. can anyone offer guidance on this. Many thanks. Garrett

Thank you. The Aussie supplier is sold out at this point but I'll drop them a note and ask to be wait-listed. Thanks again. Garrett

Vadim just posted last week a new slide show video that further clarifies effectiveness of various felt wheel hardnesses:

So it seems diamond hard might not work as well...

I contacted Knife Grinders on the 2nd of this month about the double bevel felt wheel. Vadim promptly replied the wheel will be available at the end of Jan for those on wait list. Spendy but necessary as have a lot of customers that prefer to use serrated knives in the kitchen especially if their kids help with food prep.

The worst knife cut I have ever had was with a serrated knife. It was on my palm and due to a lapse in judgement and the knife cut through the roll a lot easier than I expected.
Sharpen the knife blade
Hone edge until perfection

Knife grinders have the double taper wheels in stock, received notification last night and promptly placed order. Sure would like one of those $$$ Kangaroo strops. Interesting reading had no idea what a guarded resource they are.
