Hanging Burr



After performing side edge sharpening and polishing, a hanging burr can be formed which may feel like a razor sharp corner. This can create hooking of the edge and unexpected edge action. Removing the burr is necessary and and easy final edge tuning step.


By placing a stone on the base edge, and run along it, the burr can be knocked off and the edge corner polished smooth. A dressing or gummy stone can follow to smooth the sharp corner further.
