The main purpose caught my interest. Trying to gather three knives of a same steel/maker caught my interest.

It went downhill when I got that the proposed deburring method(s) was not the stones themselves but leather or cork - the unclarity of why and where to use any of the two further throwing this downhill.

Then seeing this guy pushing equal force = like a madman into a NP400, Debado 1K and Morihei 4K... aaaaah. I stopped there. I could be wrong but will take a guess that he'll see no difference.
 
Not a fan myself either... definitely lacks in the skill category...also tends towards the look at all the wonderful stuff I bought/received...

Take care

Sadly most kitchen knife related youtube channels are usually not very good, some seems to lack basic knowledge or intentionally withholding, some others are just straight shills. Some vendors do make pretty good videos, and couple forum members and others do pretty nice cutting videos, but usually have double digits viewership.
 
I did see this video and I was anxious to see the morihei in action, but obviously learned very little.
If you read the comment section he does seem to be getting a lot of valuable sharpening advice and criticism that he takes seriously. I think he’s pretty self aware enough to know he still has a lot to learn.
 
While I praise his initiative and positive attitude I hope newcomers to sharpening see his videos as entertainment and not reference material, because there’s a lot of wrong and confusing “stuff” in his videos.

I agree that he seems to take feedback very well, so I wouldn’t be surprised in the future he starts doing experiments with more quality, but right now I think they are not good as reference/informational material. But perhaps his interest is more on the entertainment part…
 
Although I agree with the above, there is a place for this kind of people.

Are 'we' the ones who look for information videos on youtube? (We do out of interest and hobby, but not because we look for an actuel tip for a problem).

Most youtube 'technical' channels are there for the absolute new ones.
And then there are simply two approaches:

- You learn by wathing the technical perfect videos who pay attention to even the smallest details from the start on

- You get started with a basic video on how to rub steel against a stone and learn the details along the way.

Both ways can be good for sharpening. The second way also gives you a 'sharper knive then before'.

I don't disagree and I do think he's sincere but his proficiency aside, he's just not my style. Strikes as being more interested in channel growth than knowledge transfer. Nothing wrong with that, just not my thing.

YouTube is a lesser place with the loss of Stefan Wolf. 😔
