Paul there is even diamond lapping paste available now at the high end woodworking stores and sites. Home&Lowes are clueless to fine and even better woodworking. One time I asked the "special order" guy if he could get me clear WRC (western red cedar) he said "whas dat?"

I have been thinking about getting a barber hone. I have an old antique straight razor I would like to put to use. But I think I need to send it out to get a really good clean edge to start with. Not many places I can find that will hone them any more.

Denise, it looks like you still using oil stones for sharpening? If so, treat yourself to a Japanese water stone.

Trust me, you won't believe how much better they are.
