@Tampan - ok ordered my blade buddy with 3 extra belts. 100, 400 and 1000 g.  Do one use oil or water when grinding - or just dry?

Recently honed my Honey Badger. Last night I sliced a ripe tomato into very thin slices. Almost a perverse sense of pleasure

There is something very satisfying in using a sharp knife.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

Morning Hein,
Sorry for the delay. I was in the Kalahari and we didn't have any reception there, so no internet. Hein, I don't use anything on the belt or blade when grinding/sharpening. I will keep some water close by when I do aggressive grinding, like putting on a new cutting edge or when I correct the angle on a cutting edge. Just to keep the blade cool by dipping it occasionally.

Wish we had a local toy store like this one.
 Although:
For grinding

Maybe Straatkat can point us in the right direction on sourcing machinery ?

Also looking to get a proper bench grinder

Mikey, I really enjoyed this. Kept me out of the pub too. Took the axe to the pub. Okes say i must start a business.  Problem is two fold. The R500 margin is not worth the many hours and some things are just for joy, not money... so no

Krap met ń “sharpie” of highlighter op die edge.
Skat hom en skuur met die band wat die minste materiaal gaan wegvat.
Kyk op die edge of die ink geraak word en pas aan.
