  1. Chad,

    Your book is really wonderful. You’ve helped lift the veil on some topics for which I needed clarity.

    Your videos are also helpful. If you have time, please put up a few videos of you doing freehand sharpening on a benchstone – while the photos in your book are surely helpful, I find the video to be the easiest way to distance-learn when studying motion, like the gestures involved in sharpening.

    Thanks so much, and keep teachin’ the people.



  2. I agree. I would love to see videos on knife sharpening!

    The book is awesome. Thank you for bringing some much-needed clarity and humor to this topic.

  3. Seconded on sharpening videos.

    I like to make a series of radial cuts – sort of like the spokes on a bike wheel. Less cutting, no horizontal cutting.

    But I do think I’ll try the cheat also.

  4. Me too, I’d really love to see a video on sharpening. I’ve seen Edge Pro’s sharpening video which was great, but I’d like instruction on how to use the sharpening rod (you know the one that comes with knife sets)- I never seem to get the correct angle.
