anyway, decided to put a hold on the NWG until i retire in 2 years, for lots of reasons. by that time will have time and $$ to devote to doing it right rather than trying to cobble it together in a hurry and it not being right. in the meantime bought a D-5010 from TEXAS KNIFEMAKERS. i have decided that i am going to learn to sharpen on this thing or die trying (i live on a river and dull a lotta knives fast decimating the catfish and occassional deer and wild hog population). i have the edgepro system and like it but a jig/stone rig is so slow. the D5010 came w/a 220 belt and the first time outta the chute i sharpened a knife so sharp is scared me. so tried an old k-bar and not so good. guy at texas knifemakers suggested i get a MICRON FILM BELT in 600 or 900 as a final deburr/polish belt. all the stuff i read says a leather strop w/compound is the way to go though. so i guess my question is, after the 220 grit, and i see the burr etc etc, what next? 600 then 900 then leather strop on my grizzly 1x30" sander or...????? or a leather wheel? THANKS for the help.
