So I've been trying to learn how to properly free-hand sharpen knives. Thus been doing a lot of research on different methods and techniques. I've pulled from Dave M., Maxim and Jon B. I want to learn Jon's way (the traditional Japanese way).
Anyway I hope I'm not breaking the rules but I wanted to share a this video of how Mr Kramer sharpens knives. He's obviously trying to push his products but there is a lot of useful informaton in this video. Sorry if this video has been passed around before. Watching him work that knife just sends chills up my spine. In a good way.
Also, Notice how he really changes the angles on each side of the blade. Its amazing how fast he got that blade to sit up at attention. If there has ever been one, he's certainly a knife Rockstar in my book. Also, He's going back to the postal scale and talking about pounds of pressure to use.
Sorry Dave/Jim if I'm not susposed to post this trype of stuff, just thought everyone would enjoy it.
