    About a year ago, I bought a Spyderco Gauntlet when it became apparent that I wasn’t really that great using my steel rod in the kitchen for honing my personal knives. It always resulted in me strapping them into my WE and hitting them up with a 800/1000 to get that edge back. So I began looking for some type of stone system that takes the guesswork out of the honing process and that’s when I went with the Gauntlet. The two ceramic sticks are fixed at 20 dps and I haven’t used my WE in over a year to recover my kitchen knife’s edges. I was so excited about it, I began suggesting my customers do the same thing. Let me sharpen their knives to 20 dps and then maintain that 20 with the Gauntlet, I’ve seen a real drop in business over the last six months….you’re welcome!
