    Knife Sharpening Video

    I am a newer member and need some advice. I have viewed many Utube videos on how to sharpen Japanese knives. There seems to be several different methods used - anyone have any advice on DVD's or other material that teaches the best entry level style for someone new to the game? I intend to use natural stones and synthetic. I've had some success, but it just doesn't feel "natural" yet. Thanks!!

    Hello Mint.

    Check out Jon Broida's ("Japanese Knife Imports") YouTube channel for sharpening videos.

    http://www.youtube.com/user/JKnifeImports/featured

    Dave Martell has an instructional DVD set available on his website that people seem to enjoy (I've never seen them):

    And Murray Carter has a DVD set as well (again, I haven't seen them):

    Murray Carter brings a revised version of his "Introduction to Sharpening" shortly.

    Nothing beats hanging out with someone who knows how to sharpen, imo. Maybe they do a class at Epicurean Edge. Actually, Jon at JKI did a web-based lesson. I don't know how it worked out but I felt he was an effective instructor, in person. Maybe, he'd do another one. Didn't Dave do one of these, too?

    The link up there is for Jon's web seminars. I thought it was really good, but maybe that's cause I was there in person. I think all the other guys who were on Skype found it helpful, too.

    I'm going to check out Epicurean. Given the strong Asian community in Seattle, you would think that training in Japanese knife sharpening wouldn't be that tough to find; Maybe Jon should come west for a class - business write-off (:
