Thank you Sal. I really like your knives and sharpening products. The Spyderco ceramics are the best I’ve used.
Out of curiosity, what technology was needed to make this stone economically feasible?
I can't wait for all of the aforementioned and especially the GAUNTLET system. I too am a big fan of the GOLDENSTONE but I have one big request and I believe that Spyderco is taking it under consideration from what I've been told in the past year. I truly wish Spyderco would make the GOLDENSTONE in more grit selections. I think that would truly propel sales to a much higher level and also bring much more overall interest to the tool. I was just using mine today on 3 of my kitchen Spyders and two of my other paring knives and it didn't take 10 minutes to get them all back razor sharp again.sal wrote: ↑Thu Jun 21, 2018 3:44 pmWe're still planning the 15 degrees per side base for the Golden Stone. I carry one whenever I travel. I sent one to a forumite in the far east to play with. It's next in the queue after the Galley V. He can hoot it if he wants. (he's better with pics). I can see if I can get a pic on the thread. I'm supposed to make a video when we get all of the parts together. First the Gauntlet, then the Galley V, then the Golden stone base for 30 degrees inclusive.
I too love to experiment with freehand sharpening tools. I have just about all of Spyderco's benchstones>> the only one I currently don't have is the big Ultra-Fine stone but I'll have it before the year is out. Medical expenses have been a monster this year to say the least . I will pick up pop & beer cans if I have to in order to get a GAUNTLET system when it's finally released.
You just made a great point. Yes we do need a GOLDENSTONE in Ultra-Fine as well as other grit selections. It kind of baffles me as to why more people haven't gotten a GOLDENSTONE. It also confuses me as to why the "DUCKFOOT" was discontinued because a diamond GOLDENSTONE which is pretty much all the Duckfoot was is a great sharpening tool as well.skybladefromthe wrote: ↑Fri Jun 22, 2018 10:01 amMy new 308UF arrived yesterday. I did several passes with my S30V PM2 and achieved hair shaving sharpness. This is an amazing product! Thanks! I just realized there is an actual product called a Goldenstone. But I guess I'll leave this up here anyway because aren't they all sort of Goldenstones?
