Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hey everyone, I searched through the Mora/sharpening threads but I haven't really found the answer I'm looking for. I now own four Moraknivs with Scandi grinds and a Svord that cannot be maintained with my Edge Pro. I am using a Norton Crystolon 100/280 combination stone and then going directly to a strop with Bark River black and white (3000/12,000) compound to maintain them currently. It does a pretty decent job, but I would like to purchase a stone to help bridge the gap between the 280 grit side of the Norton and the 3000 grit black compound. I don't need anything too fancy as these are just camp knives and I will be using the Edge Pro for literally every other knife I own. Say under $30? Under $25 would be better. Should I just grab whatever the cheapest 1000/6000 or 3000/8000 (I imagine the grit is nowhere near as fine as the black strop compound) waterstone with decent reviews online and call it good? Or is there a particular stone I should be shooting for in the $25 - $30 range? Should I be looking at something else completely instead of the 1000/6000 and 3000/8000 waterstones? Is there even a single stone (combo or not) that can do a decent job of what I'm asking? I really don't want to use sandpaper to bridge the gap. And lastly, is there a stone that costs slightly more (say $30 - $40 range) that is so amazing I would be dumb not to pick it up? Thanks!
