"STILL MORE TO COME" Hey I hope that mean's the GOLDENSTONE in more grit selections?? I've been on the move the past 3 weeks and I've been taking mine with me. It is very handy for quick touch-ups. Again looking forward to this tool in more grits.
GOOD NEWS>> because I've heard that a base with more angles is in the works for the GOLDENSTONE. OH yes I most definitely want one of those my own self.
I have assumed the same thing! So it’s somewhere between the medium and fine sharpmaker rods? With a cbn duckfoot I spose I could get by. I’ve been relying on my ds2 lately to maintain edges in the office and field, and it works like a champ.
That's really interesting EVIL D because you're not the only one I've heard testify that the GOLDENSTONE which is rated as a FINE grit by Spyderco themselves. I will say that I do find my GOLDENSTONE just a tad bit more gritty than my other Fine Spyderco Stones and I own all of them with the exception of that really big Ultra-Fine stone. But mine is nowhere near the abrasive grit as the Spyderco Medium/Gray stoneEvil D wrote: ↑Fri May 03, 2019 5:09 am
Well SEF I'm about 99% certain you would have no problems at all with using the GOLDENSTONE. Because in many ways it's far more elementary than the 204 Sharpmaker. You would love it if you were to get one. You could conceivably get by with a really good quality "Coarse" diamond benchstone to do any necessary reprofiling and then finish up with the GOLDENSTONE. I've actually done that a couple of times with surprising results.SpyderEdgeForever wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 11:26 amI am very excited about this. Then here is my question to sal and all of you who have used the Golden Stone. Is this a sharpening tool that an inexperienced knife-sharpener like myself (who does not own a Sharp Maker and who is only somewhat familiar with using those horrible pull-through knife sharpeners and traditional flat sharpening stones and steel rods) can use to put a sharp edge on my folders and fixed blades, both plain and serrated edge, such as the Endura, Cara Cara 2, and Pacific Salt Serrated Edge, without needing alot of sharpening knowledge? Also, could this be THE only sharpening tool I need, perhaps coupled with some sandpaper to finish off any burrs or scratches?

It really interests me because I've even only ever heard of one complaint that some of the Ultra-Fine stones are more gritty than they should be. And it baffles me because I'm certain that Spyderco's quality control is very rigid. It really makes me wonder what the problem might be???
