    That's what a single bevel was made for. Hauling ass on a stone with a foot long knife.

    What does he have to the left of bridge that he keeps putting the knife edge down on?

    I meant his left.

    what is he hitting it up with at the two minute mark after sharpening? What is the liquid he is applying? Ironic that this is posted right after I posted about rust on my ****

    Also, is it not important to always keep your pushing hand in the middle of the stone? this dude is everywhere on the stone and with his hand...

    He also keeps the knives (partially?) submerged in the sink before and after sharpening.

    Yanagis are thick and inflexible. Also, his hand only wanders off the stone when he really isn't grinding much at all. The board contact happens near the tip, at the end of the cut and so that is where the damage is and that is also where the metal needs to be removed and the pressure applied. At that point, his hand is over the stone. The rest of the sharpening requires essentially no pressure.

    You only get into trouble if your blade is bending on the stone. In that case, you will only get abrasion where the edges of the stone are in contact with the blade.

    What I think is a little wierd is he seems to be rubbing out the rust after sharpening. I always remove rust before the final sharpening step.
