The one thing you must do when knife sharpening is form, and remove the burr. In this video I show you, up close, what the burr looks like. I also show what the burr looks like after minimizing on a sharpening stone, as well as after stropping. Fully removing the burr is ESSENTIAL for the sharpest knife possible. And if done properly, you can achieve very sharp edges even with coarse grits. The knife sharpening stone used in this video is a prototype stone made by us and is about 500 grit. We hope to have a range of these available soon. The strop and compound can be found on my website link below. Thanks so much!
