Lots of videos out there, but these two are interesting because of their simplicity
Paul Sellers on sharpening flat/hollow grind knives
Ray Mears on sharpening a "Scandi" grind blade
Thanks for those i like the first one most as a little less cost involved, another tip for people is that you can wet and use the bottom of a cup/mug ''the part without glaze'' to run your knife across
All pull together to raise the phoenix from the ashe
A car window is good too
I learnt how to sharpen a knife when I was 15 it took me a long time to learn how to keep it sharp
Like the first video for the novice if you have never raised a family with a knife you are probably a novice.
Very useful. Thanks for posting.
There was a post in here of a guy from NZ processing cattle. Now he had the sharpest knife I have seen.
Yes, the beauty of these is the simple method of holding the correct angle. The Scandi edge has a built in angle to work on by holding it flat on a stone, but the flat/hollow grind does not so is a bit trickier.
You can sharpen a blade on all sorts of surfaces such as coffe mugs, window edges, stone steps, but if you can't hold the angle straight then all you do is blunt the edge. It's definitely an art but takes a lot of practice to sharpen 'freehand'... I prefer simple as above
