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.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
