Sharpening a knife - 400/1000/5000 - STROP!

Posted by on

This video lets the king of knives, Sir Bob Kramer, walk us through the process of taking a blunt knife and turning into a knife sharper than James Bond. He starts with a rougher wet stone (wet so it doesn't get to hot) with a grit of 400 then moves through 1000 and 5000 grits. Last but not least he will use a strop to remove the steel that has been removed from the knife. It takes time to learn but we might as well enjoy the process.
