Sharpening School Lesson 3

Post by Peter Nowlan » Sun Aug 06, 2017 7:05 am

The new lesson is all about thinning. I asked Jon Broida to do the video and I wrote the article. Thinning isn't easy, I hope this will help folks with the process.

Peter and Jon,
I've watched all three of these and yes, you have upped my game. Not only mine though, I have shared them with a private cooking group I belong to and they have been met with great response. Many of them looked at sharpening as an impossible task and even though they have a log way to go, watching your videos and gaining ground has made them thirst for more, like the rest of us crazy people that actually get therapeutic benefit from sharpening.

I agree with all of this. I feel that at this point I know what I am doing but I feel that by watching these videos, it ups my game, as you said. I also recommend them to others and for them as well as me it leaves us craving more.

The goal of these online lessons are simply to install, in one place, a learning environment that unfolds in a logical sequence. To take a novice sharpener to the point where he or she can start from scratch and continue on successfully because they started off on the right foot. These videos, published by Knifeplanet with the accompanying articles will come to an end at some point here as there are only a few more lessons on the radar. Jon will do the single bevel demonstration. Lesson #4 will concentrate on the two things that helped me create the sharpest knives that I personally have done. Pressure and and equalizing Time, Pressure and Angle to achieve a balance on both sides of the knife (symmetrical). I'll do this on one or two stones and maybe just one as I know many people only have one water stone to start off with.

Nice video where we actually get to see a demonstration of terms like thinning in action.

Teaming Peter and Jon, it doesn't get any better!
