Videos like this cheer me up, because there is still so much left on the learning curve, I know I can't tire of the hobby easily

Maxim,

You seem to put a lot of pressure when sharpening, at least more than I do. Is this to make mud or is that how much pressure you use on all stones?

The pressure to use on the knife when sharpening is very varying depending on the stone and the knife and how much metal you have to remove and what part of the sharpening process you are in. I tend to use more pressure early in the process on the coarser stones and go lighter and lighter as I move to finer stones. Same within one single stone. I use more pressure when starting on a stone to build slurry and go lighter as slurry builds as I want to refine the scratch pattern from that one specific stone in transition to the next finer stone. The pressure used will thus graphically look like a decreasing saw tooth graph.

That said, experience will provide you with a feel for the contact between steel and stone that tells you exactly how much pressure is appropriate. It is all about feel. It's like music. In the beginning it's good to use notes to play to avoid mistakes. After a while you will get better music and results by improvising. :)

couldnt have said it better myself

these new videos made me want to sharpen, which is what i've been doing for the last few hours now ;)

Testing out stone combos on different steels or the same steels by different makers... woo hoo

That's a good explanation.

I have only been sharpening by hand for about a year and can get impressive results (I think), but seeing more of these videos of others sharpening makes me realize that I need to work on my technique quite a bit.
