    Knife Sharpening!

    Good afternoon fellow preppers! (From the UK Timezone anyway)

    I'm looking for some advice on learning to sharpening knives (Bushcraft knives & everyday kitchen knives)

    Could anybody point me in the direction of a good book / thread?


    Many Thanks

    I know a lot of folks will poo poo this, but it's worked well for me. If the knives are fairly new and still have somewhat of an edge on them using a tool like this Knife Sharpening!-smith-abrasives-2-step-knife-sharpener-027925190050_image1__11234.1528387550.650.650.jpgwill put almost a razor edge on the blade. First use the course side and stroke the blade say 5 - 10 times in one direction, turn the tool around and do the same number of strokes in the opposite direction. Once that's done flip the tool over so the white cylinders are up and do the same . Using the same number of strokes in both directions will keep the edge on the blade as true as possible
    It's all true, give or take a lie or two.

    Have that one and a green one called sharpNeasy. Both work great for keeping a really sharp edge on several schrade's and Boker's

    I think he got his feelings hurt. He was a bit of a broken record in every topic posted, but the man sure knew how to sharpen a knife. And he let you know it every chance he had.
    C'mon back @The Tourist . Maybe ease up on the "I'm a biker from Wisconsin who sharpens knives" in every single thread, and just bring it up when pertinent. You're still an asset to the site.

    I have one of those, but it only seems to work well on certain knives with a really thin edge grind.
    Since the bevel is fixed, you can't use it for everything. But it can refinish an edge that is thin enough and only needs a few strokes.

    Yeah, well just before he got butt-hurt and left, someone else was asking for sharpening advice and chico copped an attitude and claimed his knowledge was too valuable to offer for free.

    I have tried any number of stones and systems, . . . picked up one of these at the behest of a friend, . . .

    I'll probably never look back from this.

    If you want to get to a half whisker from razor blade sharp . . . this will do it . . . and if you are careful, . . . it will do razor sharp as well.

    Easy to use, . . . simple to use . . .
