    I'm having trouble visualizing that - do you hold the magazine like a roll, and then swipe the edge perpendicular to it? Sounds like a neat technique!

    Please, explain this further.

    Well, if there's some explanation, I wouldn't be able to give it to you. The dude doesn't speak english. He sharpened it. I tried to convey the fact that I saw a burr and asked him (non-verbally) to deburr, just so I could check out how he does it. He just picked up a magazine in his hand, half-rolled up and just swished the blade back and forth a few times and handed it back to me. I looked for the burr and found just a little left on the heel. It was pretty nonchalant-looking. I'm used to seeing people be pretty careful about it.

    if you do a solid job in your sharpening, burrs come off easy

    Use light pressure, use same angle you sharpened at and draw the knife away from the bade edge, holding the paper behind the blade edge. No crumpling. Just a convenient alternative.
