Guys I appreciate all the replies.
I hav watched Paul sellers and many more YouTube videos but I never knew if those guys were really just anal about how shaper they go or if they were trying to sell sharpening big stones.
From the sound of things I should try to get at least a one more finer stone and a storp
There’s this stone on Amazon that’s pretty cheap.
It’s a 6000grit. There’s another that’s a 4000. Could I go from a 1000 grit to a 6000 or should I get the 4000?
Also is there anything special about a strop or is it just a piece of leather and the compound that’s important? Asking cause I actually hav an old belt that would probably work
