No longer cooking for a living (hello sanity!) I had worried that I had become out of practice sharpening. Now working rigging sailboats, I traded a hand made knife lanyard for a knife sharpening. My buddy's knife was an antique camillus rigging knife. Had to thin it then Beston bester and chosera. Thing was screaming Sharp after it was stropped.
Got a call today that he cut his finger to the bone and needed 9 stitches! He said he didn't notice til a blood drop hit his leg...
