    Help - who sharpens this way?

    Some time ago I watched a video with someone who kept the knife in the prolongation of his arm, making very short lateral movements, less than 1/4", going along the blade by moving the wrist but staying stationary on the stone. Any idea who uses this technique?

    So you're saying somebody sharpens by putting the knife to the stone with one hand and making small wrist motions to rub the blade to the stone?

    No wrist movement for scratching, arm movement from the shoulder.

    If you're staying stationary on the stone you're not sharpening much!

    If English isn't his first language that may be a problem. By stationary I think he means the knife moves slightly side to side on the same place on the stone.

    Prolongation has me stumped though.
