    Whats the proper way to use a wet stone? I've heard tip to handle but also handle to tip with both saying to never do the other. Does it really matter which way or are these just personal preferences?

    I go from tip to handle using a counterclockwise circular motion. I've noticed a counterclockwise motion has a better affect. Also, I have noticed that by starting at the handle and leading towards the tip, the blade has a tendency to wobble some once it gets towards the tip. Let me know how you make out with your knife sharpening.


    For 33 years I've been sharpening my knives using a (BUCK) whet stone and still have my original whet stones.... the middle of the coarse stone is half the thickness of the ends from using it all these years. I like the (old) BUCK sharpening stone kit.... they sold a sharpening kit years ago - a coarse stone, a fine stone and a can of honing oil all in a handy plastic box with clear lid. A few years ago I bought some BUCK whet stone kits on-line. These kits can be found at on-line auctions.
