    Actually, as a relative noob, I'm afraid to sharpen my 'better' knives -- spent last weekend going after more forgiving stuff (old Sabatier carbon, Henckels petty, etc) and avoiding trying to sharpen my Tadatsuna cleaver... which I really want to do! It's right-hand biased like 90/10, and I've never sharpened knives like that. But the temptation!

    That's some good advice right there.

    Hit the stones lengthwise - it's very stable this way. Do it man!

    You got to start using your knives for them to get dull. I got a great idea, send me your knives and I'll send them back to you dull...maybe I'll throw in a few small chips for you just to keep you busy

    In some weird, twisted way, this sounds like a good suggestion. I have the same problem. I get pissed when friends and family come to visit and don't bring their knives with them for sharpening.

    Dave -- thanks for the pointer, I successfully re-sharpened my Tadatsuna and am happily chopping away once again. Sharpening is such an interesting exercise, as there's no "perfect" achievable, just whatever's satisfying for the given knife or usage.
