Hi all...  Hoping you might be answer a couple of questions that I have.  1) Does anyone use a microtome knife sharpening kit made by Pathco?

If so, 2) How well does it sharpen the blades?  3) Is there any issue on attaching the abrasive sheets to the honing plate?  4) Do the abrasive sheets tend to "move"

during the sharpening process, that would cause the blade not be on them but on the plate instead?

  I currently am using coarse and fine abrasive liquids along with the honing plate... but the coarse, fine and honing liquids are becoming quite expensive and hard to come by.

Any and all replies are welcomed.

Thank you in advance,
