thanks all, good to see some thumbs up for the UltraSharp kit. I thought the Ez-lap were going to be far too expensive, and they are a little bit more pricey than the UltraSharp, but not as bad as the DMT kits. That said I admit having no money and no stones for now I’m kind of tempted to try out with sandpaper, if nothing I’ll appreciate the diamond stones even more.

@Max what’s your sandpaper sharpening grit progression?

anybody else using or that has used sandpaper willing to chime in?

@lumberin_on, I had seen that video before, in fact that’s the one that made me decide for diamond stones. The thing is, while it’s true that you get to pay for, what’s unclear to a newbie like me is what I need. I’m far from doing fine woodworking and short on cash so is it really worth spending the extra dough on “better stones” or would I be better off investing that money on something else? this is similar to the underlying question about combination squares (and I appreciated the contextual answers there).
