    Sharpening business startup/ Hapstone Advice

    After decades of using benchstones I am planning to use a table jig for sharpening for other people. Must be members who sharpen as a business? Love some tips, maybe we could have a thread?

    I have been told the Hapstone V7 is no good for small blades, like pocket knives. Is that right? Has anyone had any success with packers?

    Jende hasnít got back to me. Is there anywhere else is Oz that sells them?

    Iím into antique tools and knives, especially folders. I refurb some for sale but mostly hoard Ďem away.. if they are good enough for sale they are too good to let go..

    I suggest you have a look at the 'Knife Grinders' website, based out of Sydney. They've also got quite a number of very informative posts on this forum under the user name wootz
