I use Dawn and Simple Green.
When a little soap will do, it's just a couple drops of Dawn in a quart spray bottle. I use this on water stones and DMTs. A couple drops per gallon for the 2x72. It's amazing how much better belts work with a little soapy water.
On oil stones, Simple Green works better. It's pretty darn soapy, and it works that way. It works for DMTs too, but it's way more expensive, and it's almost too slippery.
(it smells nice too, like lotus blossoms or something, like I imagine it in sharpening heaven)
Knives don't get dull in heaven, Pete, unless you order them that way.
What the heck kind of soap is that anyway? Lol!
