Re: Advice on sharpening a Slick

Patrick Gibbons
Dave, I'm not understanding why this would be difficult. The end of the slick would be honed just enough to take off the wire edge from honing the bevel. Laying the end on the stones just enough to do this would be repeatable every time. Flattening for the first time would work the same way, progressing through the grits. I'm not understanding your concern.
