    new video... ideas?

    I was thinking its been a while since i made any videos myself (the japanese knife society vids dont count as this in my mind), so i thought i'd throw a feeler out there... i get a ton of questions every day, but what would you guys like to see a video about if i make one this coming week?

    I'm getting much better at sharpening on the stones, but where I still struggle is a consistent honing technique between sharpening. I do quite a bit of veg prep on polyboards at work and quickly loose a trued edge. I'd like to see your thoughts on this if possible.

    A video on how you finish your edges?

    Maybe a video of a whole sharpening and stropping session on a 50-50 bevel gyuto?

    Also with your thoughts on when you do go back to the stones, which grit do you start with (last stone used from last sharpening session? Lower?). Or maybe something broader like: maintaining the edge from the last full sharpening session, through when it's time to start thinning behind the edge again...

    Yes! I'm wondering these things as well.

    +1 I love watching an experienced sharpener just go straight through on a 50-50 DB Gyuto.

    +2 - Just about to get into stropping to finish edges as well as touch up edges and would love to see your thoughts and opinions on something like that.

    Someone posted it elsewhere, but cutting techniques/motions for really hard foods like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, etc...I've been able to figure out some of them, like butternut squash, but those ones I listed are still annoying.
