    You'll probably want to use a file to start on the Council, but after that the puck will do a great job of bringing it to a bright hazy mirror shine. :)

    I intend to break in a brand new bastard file on the edge.

    Another great demo by Liam Hoffman with the Arctic Fox puck. It speaks volumes that he uses his personal one to sharpen the antique draw knife he fits handles with. :)

    Benjamin, I just received my Artic Fox puck( and p-38) in the mail and am very happy with It/them, I used it to touch up the blade on my Izzy II that I dinged prying open a screen door for a customer that got locked out of a house today. It worked very well am I am looking forward to putting a keen edge on several of my chopping implements. It is much higher quality that the usual run of the mill puck style stones that I have tried in the past. Excellent product !!!!

    We're now using a new, improved logo. Our first stone in the Bull Thistle series will be coming right up, too. :)

    The Bull Thistle stones aren't available yet. The first stones in the series will be American pattern scythe stones of the parallel-walled oval bar variety. The Bull Thistle series is an ANSI 120 ruby grit with a medium hard bond intended for setting an aggressive slicing scratch pattern or refreshing moderately to badly dulled or thickened edges that need minor nicks or dings removed.

    ah - I missed that the focus of the above picture was showcasing the new logo, not the new stone series.
    thanks.

    The first in the Manticore series is now officially slated for production. A standard 8" bench stone will be the first model, and it'll be an 80/20 ratio homogeneous blend of black and green silicon carbide (carborundum) in a whopping 60 grit, with a ceramic bond falling between medium-hard and hard in strength (e.g. it will be three quarters of the way between medium and hard.) Intended function of the Manticore series is for aggressive stock removal in situations where one would often use a power grinder or file, but for one of many reasons those aren't a good choice. Example applications include forming thin bevels without the risk of generating excessive heat, in settings where electricity is not available, and steels too hard for a file to bite. They should be landing in about 4 weeks if things go to schedule.

    I'm liking what I see, most modern sharpening stones don't compare to yesteryear.
