    Some sharpening videos

    Did those for the JNS contest, but figured I'd posted them so more people see them.

    I guess I am not sure what Keith means by forward edge stropping.

    Yes I guess it would have to be edge trailing to be stropping on the stone?Where there is no fingerpad pressure on the bladeface,flipping knife over in a fluid motion lite sweeps across the stone.I first saw this in a Carter video started practicing it,like it on polishing stones wt. my Spydercos.Also Santoku & small gyuto.

    Liked watching your tech. Mainaman,it is good to see other persons style on the stones
