  1. I travel to music festivals and contests, and do repairs on location as well as selling fiddles. I hate it when my knives start to dull, but I'm not going to carry my waterstones with me. Too much of a mess, and no room in a 10 x 10 foot Ez-UP. While looking for an alternative, I decided to try a Spyderco "Triangle Sharpmaker". It's one of those angled ceramic rod sharpeners with triangular rods in medium and fine grits. It works surprisingly well! Once I got the bevels on my knives reshaped a little bit, I was able to get a very sharp edge, very easily. More easily than with my water stones. By very sharp, I mean, for example, that my old Swiss Army knife can cut a free-hanging hair, shave curls off one of my very fine hairs (.0015 - .002 diameter), and split a piece of paper (shave a curl off without going through). That's about as sharp as I was able to get my straight razor when I used one. The kit is pretty well engineered, and in a pinch it will work like a regular whetstone, so I can touch up my chisels and planes on the road as well. I'm going to keep the kit by my bench in the shop, because it's ideal for knives. I'll probably keep doing my plane blades and chisels on the water stones while I'm in the shop. The stones can be set at 30 or 40 degrees included angle. For a strong edge I shape the bevel at 30 degrees, and then add a micro bevel at 40 degrees. For the finest edge, I just sharpen all the way at 30.
  2. I bought a Paul K. Berger violin several years ago. I played it for a while but have set it aside and am thinking of selling it. Has anyone else ever heard of or had experience with his violins? I paid about $4000 for it and am trying to assign a current value for it.
  3. So, as some of you might know, I was recently looking for a viola, and bought one on Ebay. Now before I go on, I just want to make it clear that I am in no way trying to "plug"(?) a specific seller, or promote any seller. I thought it might be useful for some who is also looking for a new viola. I'm posting my thoughts on the Viola as an instrument, and not the seller. I bought this viola from Yitamusic on eBay, and I must say.... I am absolutely amazed by the its sound. The auction described the tone as Deep and Open, and that is exactly what it is. Warm, deep, soothing, open. I put new Warchal Karneol strings on right away, and it goes extremely well with this viola. The sound is loud, and the setup is great. The nut is very well shaped, the bridge feet fit to the instrument, and the soundpost is adjusted to fit to the arching of the viola. Overall I'm happy with the setup. I might, maybe, reshape the neck at some point, but might keep it as is. Still deciding. All in all, this was an absolutely excellent buy, and for the price, is a fantastic viola. I would say it is suitable for beginners, intermediate, advanced, and would even go as far as say it would suit a professional player. I'm not sure if I would classify it as a "Solo" instrument though, although someone who plays well could make it work. The varnish is applied well, and is not at all too thick, as you might see on some cheap instruments. The viola is 16.25 inches. Keep in mind, when buying a viola or violin like this, the bridge wont be on the instrument, and the soundpost will be down. Just saying. I will try to get a sound clip on tomorrow. Thank you for reading.
  4. I started a review site at www.ViolinStringReview.com Please help build this site up by leaving a post, or uploading a string package picture. I personally am giving away a free set of stings or your choice to a random person who leaves a review (Ending May 15th). I hope this site will become a large part of the string community in the future.
