As an aside, I have to thank you for linking that video. It's instructive and helpful, and I went down the rabbit hole on his channel and wound up subscribing. I quite like his delivery; he's educational while entertaining and he comes up with some pretty great stuff.

He's a really sweet guy (Tom Veff) and a Navy vet (Nam)
He will sharpen for you and sends a bandaid with his work! (You will need it)

This is a very good video. Knowing what you are trying to do is the first step to doing it right. This video is also good about how to get there.


Adequate if overdramatic video. I do note that he's using a relatively inexpensive King 1000/6000 grit stone. No mention of removing the wire edge with cork or soft wood if you want a sharp but toothy edge. No mention of ways to maintain a proper angle, which sometimes is 15 and sometimes will be other angles and why.

I still recommend the Murray Carter videos. More detailed using the same stones........


Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................

Here's most peoples problems with Stone Sharpening.
On many knives you don't have enough length on a stone for a smooth even and consistent Strop.
This result in an uneven edge or sharp spots/dull spots.
