    wd40 is a de-greaser not an oil
    don’t get oil stones Japanese water stones are the way forward the cut faster you can maintain them flat and you dot get oil all over your work

  6. sarelle500gr says:

    Use thick oil with coarse oilstones, and light oil with fine stones like black arkansas. Never use wd40.

  7. sarelle500gr says:

    actually heavy oil or wd40 are problem. Oil or water used tı for a suspension between metal and stone. suspension kkeps metal’s temperature low, lubricates the stone and most importantly for the oilstones:

    with the help of oil, metal particles washed away from stone’s edges at sharpening time. This is really important with low grit porous dense oilstones. Because of their dense nature they cant renew their surfaces with sharpening action so if they clog up, you’re done. you have to clean it.

    Good video Rob, but you should use the whole surface of the stone. I know the stones are tough but over time and repeated use they will become misshaped/unflat.
