Poor figure for the price you pay
This wood is very expensive but I figured at the high price I would get a highly figured piece. Nope. Save your money.

BEST ANSWER: I have always used Soft Arkansas Stone until recently. now I use a leather strop belt on my belt sander. I also have a leather wheel for my grider. This method almost make the knife too sharp (if there is such a thing). You also can use a diamond bench stone with great results. My favorite is leather strop with compound. I would not consider any of these methods cheap and a Soft Arkansas Stone would probably be the cheapest .
