I'm thinking of getting one , any care and feeding thoughts ? I have an SM , several Japanese water stones + a lapping plate , and a bevy of strops . One of my strops is a hanging strop , the others are paddle type .
Anyone think ultrafine rods used in the grooves on the Sharpmaker's base would work for honing ? I also have an 8000grit ceramic stone , allbeit a short one .
