Re: humbling experience with skew

John, thank you for your thoughtful response -- and to all who have written in. As I have said in my last post, I solved the problem by resharpening several of my skews and power honed them on MDF charged with that grey stainless steel polishing stuff. I don't usually have this problem , and that's why I posted here. The repeated catches were not the spiral kind. I was getting sudden " shocks" that resulted in nasty little chip-outs. This kind of thing can spoil your confidence; and I am more careful now about sharpening.
