    I don't think you will find many people teaching classes on knife sharpening. Your best bet would be to look for a store that sells Japanese knives (like Korin in NYC), or see if you can find a forum members near by who could show you their technique. I found it very effective, and the rest is practice.

    In the last 20 min? If you did it a long time ago, what was the problem?

    Really not that informative. sugai although very talented does not speak English. You'll note that their website calls this experience a knife sharpening demo. Not a class.
