My name is Jon and I'm new to KKF. I have a question about knife sharpening. There are so many videos regarding how to properly sharpen knives. The one that I seem to agree with most are the ones posted by Curtis Chung on Youtube. Now I was wondering, between counting strokes and burr formation, which do you generally go for? I find that if I try to get a burr to form, it takes many strokes on one side and I eventually forget how many strokes I performed. I end up sharpening one side more than the other and feel like the edge starts to get wavy and not flat against the cutting board. Also, when I do the western stroke method, the belly seems to get a burr faster than the tip and the heel. Sorry if this sounds confusing. Please ask if you need clarification. Any help regarding sharpening is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
