Great how to video! I have some older knives Chicago Cutlery knives that could use sharpening so I will use your technique

My wife sent me your video because I keep our knives sharp and usually take the stone when we go to visit friends (to give sharp knives as a sort of guest present). When I learned to sharpen knives I was instructed to always cut into the stone, i.e. always move the blade forward, not backward. I was wondering if you had experimented with different techniques and had a strong opinion one way or the other.

Hi Alexander, You are exactly right. I am pushing into the stone in small circles, NOT pushing backward. What a nice present you give friends!

Thank you for your video I was just about to pay for someone to sharpen my knife but I would much rather know how and be able to have a sharp knife always. Will give this a try. Again Thank You...

Thanks for all the awesome videos. I was just wondering, what sharpening stone do you recommend? There are so many different kinds on Amazon and I am now at a loss.
