Convex (sandpaper) sharpening rig

Convex (sandpaper) sharpening rig

This is my DIY sandpaper sharpening rig, used mostly for convex blades (most of my blades - Fallkniven, Mora, Opinel, even Victorinox - are convex)

However it's not portable - stone slab base is too heavy. Hard rubber mat is glued on top and it prevents waterproof sandpaper from slipping (well, most of the time). Water is used if needed (hence the red plastic tray).

What grit sandpaper do you put on there? I don't know anything about sharpening knives but I need to learn. I have been looking into a lansky system because it seems dumdum proof. That's what I need. I like you rig though. I would like to use something like that.

Lansky rig helps you keep the right bevel angle, and that's what you need as a beginner. Get it, follow the instructions and you'll be fine. You can get some stones and move on to freehand sharpening when you gain some experience.

I use 280-500-600 grit for initial sharpening (dull blade), 800-1000-1200-1500 grit for final sharpening and leather strop (with green paste) for blade maintenance. These are wet (waterproof) carbide sandpaper pads, normally used for car bodywork repairs/repaints.

Bear in mind that this is not a rule of any kind, it's just my personal preference.

Cheers,

Tam

That's pretty good.

Right now I just use regular cheap stones on my pocket knives, but on my more expensive ones I use my higher quality stones with oils and sandpaper.

But I'm looking into the micro film technique for my insanely sharp chef knives.

I thought I knew (almost) everything about sharpening gear. How does that look like, perhaps you have a link?

BTW you can achieve madly sharp edge by finishing your (multi-stage) sharpening on a plain leather belt. My Fallkniven F1 VG10 Lam literally splits hairs...

Cheers

Still trying to figure out WTH is this guy doing... Totally hype, wrong, and utter overkill. Better thing to do is to learn to use diamond sharpener or a normal whetstone properly.

Cheers,

Tam
