    A cheap set of leather working tools that will be used once for repairing the sheath for my Enzo knife.

    and a King KW65 #1000/#6000 grit japanese whetstone. + some polishing compound for my paddle strop.
    As what I have gathered King stones is supposedly not the king of the hill when it comes to whet stones from the Empire of Japan, but
    it is what I could afford at the moment, and I am certain it will get the job done well enough for me...unless
    the usual thing happens...I get bitten by the shiny kit syndrome and go maniac...

    ANyway, it will be a break from my suual mantra that the cheap 4$ stones are good enough (they are)...I jsyt want to try something new :-)

    I use a King stone and find it more than adequate. Gets the blades sharp enough to keep the wife covered in plasters anyway!

    The king stones are just fine actually...
    Keeping them from freezing temperatures and also truing them flat before each session is imperative though...

    Good choice on kit purchases Rune!👍👍
