    I'm confused now. Isn't that how everyone sharpens their knives?

    I wonder what the average life of a knife in his household is?

    Yeah, he saved some heel for later.
    Perhaps he heard that tall heels are in vogue on KKF and wanted to save some heel height for flipping the knife later.

    Ignoring everything else, I want to know how on earth he takes so much time using a power-tool like that?
    You'd think it would be done in seconds...

    It would take years of poor steeling to obtain such a nice profile.

    In many parts of the world, these are professional sharpeners.

    It's interesting that he tests the blade out on a magazine (those poor women) before sharpening, then on a sponge or whatever afterwards. I'd be interested to see whether it actually cuts the magazine better after sharpening.

    It's horrible in the context of good knives. But if it's a 5 dollar knife, you don't care what you do to the already questionable HT and soft steel and you can do this once every 3 days, you probably have a tool that is "acceptable within your chosen framework". I'm not saying go and do this, but he gets an edge, he probably doesn't give a toot about damaging the knife and goes on about his day.

    Just playing devils advocate here..

    Jokes aside, why does it take so long? Should be a couple of passes, no?

    I believe people should sharpen their knives in whatever manner makes the most sense to them. However, when you put up a tutorial on YouTube, you have a responsibility, especially to new sharpeners not to introduce them to poor techniques or methods. This is an epic failure, and totally irresponsible.

    eeeh forgot about deburring??

    the first 2 passes was the sharpening then he's doing a killer deburring program plain and simple.

    where this guy lives this probably classifies as quite sophisticated sharpening since he has a machine. i agree its totally epic...

    Now this method could probably be quite good if he could make that angle grinder spin at 1200 or 120 rpm instead of 12k with some variable speed drive (frequency modulation or whatever they use for mains). its only 6-800w or so. this must be cheap to buy on ebay.
