I ran across this & decided to watch it & to see what he says about sharpening.
I like his demeanor & data. He is such a simple, smart "teacher".

Watched all his videos. He reminds me exactly of the journeyman I got to work with my whole apprenticeship. Every day I’m thankful I got to work with a guy like that for 5 years.
I too, learned from the "Masters of yesteryear" !:2 thumbs up::finished:

He knows what he's doing, I saw one of his vids on marking and measuring that covered about everything.

i may have one tool that had an 'edge' but isn't sharp

my #1 suggestion to any / all newbies to knife sharpening, practice on a dud knife FIRST

practice on several of them, it's a tough lesson to think you're 'good enough' to touch up the edge on a very nice knife, only to see that, at some time in the process, you've made several scratches on other parts of the blade you didn't want touched...blade handling is not so important on daily use and / or rusted knife, but for your 'keepers', it certain is

practice practice practice but you'll soon 'get it'
