    To remove sharpie rub with a dry erase marker, than wipe clean. Works like magic!

    I know this is not popular to say,but I am not a fan of beginners tips.They can become excess habits.I do teach observation,steady spine & even burr heel to tip.Fingerpad pressure on trailing stroke.

    When I learned sharpening fr. Sushi Chefs,no beginners tips & a bit of a language barrer,but their english was good enough,I picked it right away & haven't had to use a dull knife since.

    That's how I work the best as well -- just jump in, make a hell of a lot of mistakes until you get it right, and learn properly without a handicap. Everything else is a crutch.

    The magic marker is great for detecting different (micro-)bevels on an unknown or new knife. And for diagnosis if everything went wrong, which, of course, never happens.

    The big sharpie (or even small one) is a tool I have in my toolbox. It doesn't come out every-time but its good to know its there.

    I use vodka. Still don't know if it works or not.

    Both ethanol and methanol work very well for this purpose. I hope your vodka does not contain too much of the last.
