My personal Tip Technique

Post by Peter Nowlan » Fri Feb 10, 2017 10:52 am




This is just how I, Peter Nowlan do the tip and minor edge repairs. If you have a better way I would love to see it. This has worked for me for thousands of knives but that doesn't mean another approach will work better. Maybe I have been doing it wrong all this time.

You want a piece of me ???


Respectfully

Thanks Peter,

I really appreciate your video tutorials. Your explanations are clear and the camera angle really let's the viewer see what is going on. I have been using this tip sharpening technique for some time and it works really well for me.

Cool video. I use quite a bit of a lower angle. Probably ~ 26 - 28 degrees inclusive.

I should clarify a bit, as my views are continually changing/improving. :) For honing/touching up my expensive, polished knife that I don't need to grind down(yet) I'm at ~ 28 inclusive on the entire knife.

Honing.

I had to delete the "s" in the "https/" in the address bar to change it from a secure mode in order to view.Try that.
Here is a link to the topic when I had that problem and how it was explained to me.

i wonder if would be faster to use the high angle to remove the damage then lower the angle ... or to just stay at the lower angle untill the damage is out. Might feel better watching the ding dissappear and eaier on the hands to change angles. its an art.
