Duke this got me thinking. We are truly different in our thinking. You like speed, I like momentum. You like disposable broadheads, I like indestructible broadheads. You like whetstones, I prefer oilstones. You like compound crossbows, I prefer the simplicity of a recurve. I'm all for high FOC of my arrows, you go with industry standard. I really like blonds, brunettes, redheads and you....? Maybe when it comes to women we have something in common.When I see ... "oil" all I think of is stones clogged up with grease and metal filings. When I was young I did the oil deal on your garden variety Norton double sided sharpening stones. I much prefer water and whetstones. I can feel the difference between a clean stone and a stone with metal buildup. I even use water on my DMT diamond stones. When I use the dry Spyderco system I always clean the stones afterward, sometimes even during use. I know oil has it's advocates and you can get a knife sharp with it, just not me ...lol My old Norton stones reside out in the garage and I use them for sharpening utility knife blades, old knives I use for cutting insulation, hatchets, axes, machetes and a finished edge on lawnmower blades.
