I spent 3 months at work and home sharpening my knives exclusively on nail buffers from a beauty supply shop earlier this year just to learn from it. People have been cooking since prehistory, and detergent based CBN paste on a magnetic horse leather strop has been around less than a decade. Good? Perhaps. Worthy of filming on Youtube? Probably not.
    I do not even get the point of that video, to me the knife does not look that sharp after all the posing for the camera. I have always wondered what exactly is the use of super fine compounds other than make super sharp edges for showing off, compounds like that are no good for functional cutting edge IMHO.

    When people post videos of them cutting things just after sharpening a knife it is kinda useful because it makes you realise how far you can go. However, in many of the videos people post, the actual products they cut would be totally unusable if you wanted to cook with them. I'd rather see someone post a video of them cutting an onion slowly and superfine and actually seeing how fine the dice is, than someone going crazy and hacking it to death. Just a little something I had to get off my chest. Not that my knife skills are perfect, but sometimes these videos could be a little more functional. In many of them people try to be flashy and go fast and I can barely watch they are so close to cutting themselves

    you need to watch them without sound in slow motion.

    Hmmmmm....a "Giotto" design, eh? Now that explains the crappy geometry. It was created by an Italian Renaissance artist who's been dead for 674 years!

    Looks like just the tool for preparing yakisoba 'phone book style' though.

Bought first knife a month ago, made video, made another video, made more videos, then retailer sends him knives to evaluate, now more videos, then sharpening equipment is sent for evaluation, more-more more videos and even a t-shirt makes an appearance. One moth later - instant expert is made. Enjoy the commercials.....

    This thing reminds me of Nordic Track workout machine. Can this type of "sharpening" be considered exercise? It's certainly not sharpening

    I never saw the mushroom butt bit - damn it - no way I'm sitting through them again though....not even for a nice butt shot.
