    Hello, Recently I watched a video by Clay suggesting the use of a dish soap and water-soaked sponge to capture the debris from sharpening blades.  I agree it is an elegant solution.  However, I wonder if the viscosity of the soapy water changes the way the stones contact the edge of the blade.  Does the soapy water reduce the stone’s effectiveness in any way?  Has anyone study this or have any feedback?  Thank you!

    I have been using a soapy solution while sharpening, first with my EP Pro, now with the WE system (now going on 6-7 years). Not only for the dust, I believe its smoother with the soapy solution. I only use about 2 drops, spread it on the stone with an acid brush, then clean the brush in a cup of water so as not to cross contaminate.
