No
It's most likely not the strength buy the ability of passing old welt through the outsouling and finishing part of the process.Replacing the welt ensures the resoling pair of shoes enters the outsole stitching phase of the flow with the same standardized welt as the new shoes in the making. So the edge trimmer, polisher, finisher, etc can use the same procedure on the old shoes.Without, imagine after putting up a new outsole, the edge trimming and finishing will have to...
California is already in summer mode.
Just use a honing stick to get rid of the burr on your knives every use or every other use. Some ppl go all crazy to maintain an edge where knives own weight can do a clean slice on a tomato. I am not picky so as long as my knives can clean cut/slice green onion, chives, or leeks, it's fine.
SOP. Used welts most likely than not don't have the same integrity as new welts thus cannot be feed into the standard production line. But once welt is replaced, it feeds right onto the standard flow with tried and tested quality control.
By the way, unless you doing some really fine carving or shaping work, ceramic paring knives ain't bad. And paring knives don't really need to be sharpened that frequently since they don't get banged against surfaces.
EUR is almost at parity compare to USD. To sharpen, just get ChoSera (super ceramic) sharpening 'stones'. 1000 and 2500 grit. Pretty easy. It's almost necessary if you cook a lot or use knives on hard surfaces like all those 'environmental friendly' bamboo chopping boards.
Looking forward to some bespoke shoe pictures.
