    Thank you Marc! That makes a lot of sense.

    Do you tape up or use leather chamois when it’s in the clamp?

    I use a small rectangular patch cut from a real leather chamois towel.  I fold or wrap it up around the knife spine and sides so it lays between the knife steel and the W.E. clamp jaws. It’s just held in place by the jaws. I also use blue painters tape applied to any place on a knife when I believe steal dust or sharpening stone debris may fall onto the knife steel to scratch or mar the knife’s finish.  I’ll also cover the hinge mechanisms and liners to keep the debris out on folding knives.

    I almost forgot to mention, the chamois compressed by the locked jaws does seem to help hold the knife clamped more securely.  If the knife were to shift in the vise there is no metal-metal contact that could scratch the knife.

    Here’s an older photo from years ago showing the chamois in the vise clamp around the knife:
