Subject:
v11 oilstone edge

david weaver
some of the edge looks like this after sharpening freehand on oilstones

and some has small defects like this, and some a little worse. not sure if the blade gave those spots up to the strop or a contaminant on the stone (the latter is possible and i'll give it one more go before seeing how long the edge lasts)

cycle time to sharpen this way off of the grinder is about two minutes.
