Whats he doing wrong?
Im a chef that has a very basic knowledge and understanding of how to get an edge on my knife, and have kind of just taught myself using bits of advice here and there to figure out a method of freehand sharpening that gets a better result than your average chef.
Im here cos I want to learn more.
I saw these vids and it looks like he gets a decent edge, so I was going to give his technique a try.
But judging by the comments I take it he's not somebody to learn off?
Can someone explain why, and point me in the right direction to begin learning more about getting the sharpest edge on my knives.
I have a pretty eclectic range of knives ranging from a vintage american and euro, to stainless german, to an Aogami santoku knife.
check Jon Broida's videos on youtube capital =D
or Murray Carter's videos.
Here is a link to a whole channel of sharpening you can trust:

I was trying to figure out where I've seen that mustache, slack, smug expression and heard that voice before. Then it hit me:
Just replace "chatting with babes online" with "posting bad sharpening videos on youtube"
