Question: How can I get my knife razor Sharp?

Answer: Getting your knife razor sharp is a very common request. However, due to all of the infomercials and other outlandish claims, the term razor sharp has lost meaning to many. We try not to use that term but we too slip up and use that term. If you want the finest edge possible (and that is what we assume you mean with the term razor sharp) that is only possible with extremely fine grits. The smaller the grit particles, the finer the edge will become. We recommend for the finest edge possible to go to a 9 or 10 on our sharpening stone grit chart. These abrasives will be able to polish the edge to a mirror like finish.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
