I have a tungsten ring with a brushed finish on the outside and have used it to apply a micro bevel on a knife. It cuts like a very fine file. It also scratches wine glasses.

Edit to add

1/2 mm would make her ring look cheap lol

They don't exist, I am going to check into it.

Personally, nothing makes me happier on this forum than when Cliff utters this phrase...

A little discussion on sharpening, sketching out the way I currently view it and a demonstration of the sharpness of off this stone :

In the video, are your shirt sleeves reinforced with fabric from another flannel shirt? It looks like there is a ring of contrasting flannel around the elbow.

It isn't reinforced, the sleeves were too short but I liked the shirt so I had the arms chopped off and an extension patched it from another shirt.

Tomorrow I am on the hunt for one of those stones...they look like fun to experiment with.

If you could, get a green one. I am curious how it would compare to this one. Green silicon carbide is hard, but more brittle. I am curious if you could fracture it easily enough to generate a slurry.

On a fun note, I taught my daughter to sharpen her Old Hickory yard knife on the back of a very coarse concrete rubbing stone. I took off the handle and use the back. It has the diagonal grooves on the front. A couple of minutes with that and a large jump to a Spyderco medium triangle and it would shave my arm, though very roughly.

I could not find anywhere the green version. I did find a 24 grit black one that I ordered. I am going to use it as my work sharpener for a while. The knives are once again grossly damaged so I am sharpening them again.

Where did you get this stone ? I have looked and can't find one.

I think you'll be less than impressed with it...they wear down quickly just sharpening with them. And even fresh they don't seem to cut well...I don't think the grits are shaped very sharply as Cliff has theorized.

Mark, I think the only way to really use these effectively would be to mount one to a piece of wood and use it two handed like a spokeshave or draw file. You really need to be able to put a lot of force into it to ramp up the pressure. If you can get the grit to start crushing it is a powerful abrasive but the lower critical pressure is very high as in ~500 psi.

They are made to dress a spinning grinding wheel so the high pressure would make sense. I am just hoping to use it as you demonstrated in the video about the norton economy stone.

A 3x12" 36 brazed plate would be wonderful to have for conditioning oil stones and general tomfoolery. When you were bored you could chamfer all the edges on your granite counter tops.

Have you since managed to find/create something like this?
