    East Coast Custom Knife Show 2013

    Just back from the show. Great knife makers. More hunting and sword type stuff, but Knife Maker's Shosui Takeda & Koji Hara were in attendance.

    This method would certainly not get mud under your finger nails and no bleeding finger tips, but it is much harder to get a clean uniform bevels with this method.

    Yes, and when he was doing the demo he said, "this method of sharpening and the hand sharpening tool he uses is good for beginners who my find it easier to find the correct angle".

    Seems like it would be less fatigue on the hands and wrist's as well.

    I don't know whether that's easier on your wrist, as the stone holder with the stone is not that small and weighs something, but it gives you a better visual reference than hand sharpening, where you rely more on muscle memory. One way or another, it works and people without experience might find it pretty appealing. As some find Edge Pro appealing.

    The results speak for themselves. Method seems ideal for certain applications.
