    Everyone knows the branch chop test is the gold standard. I mean, who needs paper when you can cut a branch

    But can the guide bar round the spine during sharpening for me too?

    In all seriousness, I'm all for innovation and thinking outside of the box. However, why complicate things? I've got to give him props for trying something new though.

    I wanted to reprimand you not to make fun of retired people with hobbies, but when he whacked that branch, I screamed and changed my mind. Geezez...

    Or, one could just use a sharpie and a double sided wet stone. That was like fingernails on a chalk board!

    Ohhh I need to get myself some branches to test my knives. Those paper cuts are sooo outdated… only branch chopping from now on.

    Love the way he cared for that branch before throwing it in front of his blade. A little bottle with some water to keep it nice and green, must love pensioners!

    You must keep branches fresh, or otherwise they would dry up and chip your blade.
    And it's so cool that finally you'll be able to use your guyto in the garden as well as in the kitchen. This guy is genius.
