Why do you deburr with edge trailing passes on the stone? Edge trailing passes create more burr with each pass than edge leading passes. Have you ever used an angle grinder on mild steel? The entry point of the disc has almost no burr and the exit point has a huge burr. This is because the point at which an abrasive initially encounters a steel, the steel it abraded ends up near the point at which the steel and the abrasive no longer make contact, where it piles up (in regard to knives, making a burr along the apex). It's kind of like an entry wound vs exit wound thing. If you deburred with edge leading passes, you would have a MUCH smaller burr before stropping. This would ultimately mean less fatigued steel at the apex and a healthier apex.Deadboxhero wrote: ↑Fri Nov 15, 2019 2:24 pmThere might be more useful tips in this video.
Edit: I just got to the point where on your stones specifically, edge trailing is best??? I'm still watching.
Wow, we are different. You have scars and calluses from cutting your fingertips just to test knife sharpness???? In 25 years of sharpening I've never even contemplated this.
The purpose of a microbevel is to break off the base of the burr???
Don't get me wrong, great video, but wow... you're right, there are many ways to skin a cat.
