Its raining in Upington, so I decided to give all my recently purchased traditionals a whirl on the Work Sharp. Those 420, 420HC and 440C jobs take maybe a minute or 2 from 320 grid to stropping, but the results are simply amazing. I have detoured into the D2, 154cm and N690 lanes a bit, but my 1st love is traditionals, this just strenghened it. There is life in the old steel dogs left.

I have one of those large rubber blocks to clean my grinding belts and files, but I have been using an erasor on my ceramic sharpeners. Got this yesterday at an art shop

I struggle with the 440C blades. Easy to get sharp but very poor in retaining an edge, so much so that I have stopped using them.
