Reply To: Split shaving – time to sharpen up?

That’s a good point, Darren. I’ve switched back and forth between DMT plates (what I started with after finding Paul’s content oh so long ago) and water stones. I’ve never been fully confident on the DMT diamond stones. The extra fine DMT felt like it wore down absurdly fast, and now the medium and fine stones are starting to develop what look like chatter marks in the surface – it doesn’t feel like it’s engaging like it used to. Might be time to bust out the Ohishi stones again and see if I can rectify it there.
