Let me guess your grandpa taught you 60 yrs ago how to use a wet stone and thats all you have ever used on a knife and anything anyone else does differently is wrong.

kind of pricy, starts at $299.

Thats just the basic kit, I have over double that invested with the additional stones. You get what you pay for, there's nothing that will compare to it.

I use these pull through methods but want to learn how to use a wet stone. My problem is the angle and keeping it. I use a spiderco tri-angle sharpmaker but I'm only mildly satisfied with it. I probably need to learn how to use it better.

I'm looking for an angle guide for a wet stone to help me with the muscle memory. I've seen some that clip on but I'd like the kind that do not.

Lets see some pictures of a knife sharpened by a Work Sharp. I bet where the work sharp first touches the blade it leaves a small divot! Pictures please! I have used a stone for over 60 yrs, and still do. But for a touch up on a knife or a 2 blade Eskimo, you can't beat it. Just my $.02!
