    Hey, you guys were talking about me???

    Dave's class is very informative and no matter where you are at in your sharpening skill level I like to think you can only leave after leveling up a bit. Plus there's sandwiches.

    I learned sharpening fr. Sushi Chefs here in Hawaii many yrs. ago.Gyuto & Japan style single bevel.It was the Japanese influence that got me into carbon Masamoto's that served me well in Hotel banq. kitchens.

    I bought Dave's (The Art Of Knife Sharpening) 3 yrs. ago.I think the strength of the video is the tech. of thinning behind the edge & also his various tips some of which I use now.I also like his coverage of what works & what does not & why.I do not change hands I use my left hand to hold the blades & my rt. fingerpad press on the edge.I flip the blade over.

    It is a good DVD for a beginner,novice,or an old dude who likes to teach freehand skills to cooks & culinary students.

    Shinob1, I appreciate that you have taken learning sharpening technique so seriously. I'ts awesome that your sharpening purchases have become more important than hoarding more knives.

    A dozen dull, poorly sharpened knives are < one or two well sharpened knives.....

    I wish I lived closer to take the class. How about the Dave road show?

    I'd love to take a trip to DFW for something like this!

    Also, Eamon Burke is near FW...he hasn't been active here for a few weeks, but you might be able to coax him into some 1:1 time.
