I am not an expert at knife sharpening. Go to the manufacturers website to get usage and safety instruction. Follow the safety instructions, use your safety gear and use common sense.

You're a brave soul for posting a knife sharpening video! This subject is more sensitive than posting about religion or politics! Thanks for your efforts!

Nice video. I agree to a point with what some of these fine men have said about using a grinder to sharpen a knife. I made a living for 15 years boneing hams in a slaughter house. I say this to point out I do know what I am talking about. If you dont get the blade hot then these paper wheels work pretty good. You might want to make a jig to keep same degree with each pass. I was lucky enough to be able to use a 42 inch wet wheel to put the beval on then finish fine tuneing with fine wet stone. Keeping the edge took lots of passes on a good steel. The steels job was to straighten out the edge. Lots of people think that if your knife will shave hair on your arm that it is sharp. Well yes it is but with that fine of edge iit won't last long, roll over ! The trick to keeping your blade sharp is the same constant bevel on both sides and keeping them in line. Not rolled over. Getting your still worked just right is as important as putting the edge on your blade. Hope this has helped out some of you ? I may not be an expert but I am very good at putting an edge on and keeping it in line. Have a nice day

Dude regardless of what all the self-proclaimed knife shapers say...if you can get a cheap $6.00 Wal-Mart knife to cut like a 300.00...uh, it's a "No Brainer"...I'm. following your tips and advice...and hell even if it goes dull after a week or so, I'm only a step or two away from heading back out to the "Ol' sharpering shed...

All I need is a good old fashion stone and a piece of leather.

Having sharpened for the last 12 years using a different method, I would offer the following. (1) Reverse the polarity so the wheels move in the opposite direction. That means you can be a lot more safer. It is also a better feel and keep your angle at the top of the 2 wheels. (2) Low rpm is good. Keep practicing!   GO

It is perfectly safe to use a power grinder with this system! The grit on the sharpening wheel is VERY fine. The beeswax is applied to this wheel to redistribute the heat generated and cool the blade while sharpening. To use this system properly the edge is held at the desired angle and drawn across the wheel with moderate to light pressure and speed while counting the strokes needed to form a moderate burr across the COMPLETE edge of the blade. Reverse the  blade  and repeat using the same angle, method and number of strokes. Be SURE to wax the grinding wheel when you start AND when you reverse to the other side of the blade edge. Use the other wheel to strop the blade. Apply the rouge(don't be stingy) and draw the blade across quickly at about the same angle but NOT TOO MUCH steeper Make 2 or 3 more light passes and then reverse it to do the other edge . It will give you a "make your friggin eyeballs bleed from looking at it" sharp edge! You can go down to about 15 degrees for a very fine edge but the sharpness will not last nearly as long as the shallow angle is not as durable. A steady hand is a must and DON'T get cocky while using this machine as it can and will spit that knife back at you wickedly fast. for this reason I reversed my grinder base and the wheels spin AWAY from me for an added margin of safety.

great system, but turn the motor and wheel around, if the knife grabs you will stab yourself, and also you can sharpen higher on the wheel if it runs away from you. just sayjng

Have use this type of sharpener for a long time and they work well for kitchen knives, pocket knives etc. One can run a dozen kitchen knives in a matter of minutes and do a good job. You can spend a lot of time honing by hand if are so inclined but who has that kind of time to spend on kitchen knives. I would recommend the electric motor run at 3600 rpm with the rotation of the wheel away from you. You do that by loosing the mount screws at the base of the electric motor and flip it around and tighten down. Changing the wiring on some motors is also possible. This way you do not have to worry about the wheel catching the knife blade and throwing it into you belly etc. Use very light pressure on the blade you are sharpening. One or two passes and you should feel the burr turn it over and finish it out.

this process merely polishes a toothy edge as it is only a 2 step process.  truly sharp comes from a multi step process which would include at least 4 steps, although Id recommend a 7 grit process starting with 120 grit, 400 grit, 600 grit, 800 grit, 1000 grit then 6000 grit then strop with 10000 grit...this is my bare minimum recommendation. but if you want a razors edge id include more grits between each going all the way up to 30000 grit then strop with .3 micron on leather then just plain leather strop.   do not recommend this method at all.  as others have said its nearly impossible to maintain a constant angle...which is very important to a sharp edge.  also this creates a hollow grind which in some cases is the perfectly WRONG grind for some applications.  don't even think of using this on a bush craft knife or chisel.  but it is better than having a dull knife I suppose.  but a knife snob I am and proud of it :)
