Stones and Fingers Don't Mix

Post by Jeff B » Sun Feb 19, 2017 11:45 pm

For those that didn't see this in the Sharpening Sub-Forum
Keep those fingers off the stone. :shock:

If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.

Bringing back the old videos.

I assume we'll see "you suck at cooking" soon?

Oh, God! That bleeding is not inevitable. I do admire his commitment, but that's kind of insane.

Lol, I like chatting with the Doc, though. He has helped me get some stones from Japan on a few occasions as well, nagura.

I've erased some fingerprints and drawn a little blood before reprofiling but this is ridiculous lol.

I don't know how people even get any wear because I can feel the burn when my fingertips are touching a coarse stone and I adjust...Not so much a worry on fine stones as it takes longer to feel the burn and I am done by then. :lol:

No need to stop and add water? :roll: I currently have a red finger tip as I almost wore through it while working away on a course stone this weekend. Like Kit though, I started to really feel it and adjusted before I hit this guy's level, ha.

We decided a few years ago that this was intentional. The white blood cells actually attack the sharpening abrasive and break it down, letting the stone polish above stated grit. It's frankly ingeneous.

I wonder if he needed to deburr his fingers after sharpening them. That was gruesome to say the least.
