    Hi Malcolm

    Many thanks for this video. It was very informative. You did a great job of keeping it as concise as you have for the wide range of stones you demoed.

    I use Aurious 9, 13, 15. The 9 is quite coarse.

    I can also recommend Shinto saw rasps, which are coarse and fine on alternate sides.
