    My family asks “What do you want for Christmas?”   So maybe an addition to my Wicked Edge system?

    Here’s what I have, maybe you can add an idea or two.  I have

    Granite stone base.

    The extender for thin blades

    Electronic Angle measuring instrument






    .6micron lapping sheets

    14/10 strop

    5 / 3.5 strop

    What might I add to this collection of tools?

    Thanks and Merry Christmas to you all!

    Michael are you into highly polished bevels?  If so maybe additional glass or aluminum platens and more lapping films to fill down the progression, (3µ, 1.5µ and 1µ).  You could add some more finer grit strops to fill down that progression, (2µ, 1µ, and 0.5µ).

    You didn’t mention if you use a lighted magnified visual aid to see better what you’re doing.  A USB microscope is a tremendously helpful tool.  Especially when used in conjunction with a laptop computer.  I wouldn’t want to sharpen without mine.  It’s that helpful.

    I’m sending you a private message.
