Good evening,
Jason, I notice in your YT videos (Mr. Edgy) a certain style of positioning the knife that remains fairly constant. When the blade edge is going forward (away from you) you seem to lead with the heal of the blade. Well, I see you lead with the heal on both sides of the blade.
My question is whether or not that is a traditional technique or a style you evolved into/developed? Simply put, how did you develope your style?
And a follow up question would be do you have any advice for a newbie, who is a copy cat, and is having trouble leading with the heal?
(The copy cat is me)
Thank you for your time and consideration,

Do whatever is comfortable.

My technique is basic and revolves around pressure points and feel/feedback. The overall style of grinding is a mix of all styles of hand sharpening from Japanese to western to my own. If I see a new style I try it for myself and if I find a advancement I can use for my own style I adapt it in. I try to keep it evolving to keep me in check :)

Currently I start at the tip with the edge coming to me but still start with the heel when leading away. I sometimes sharpen with my right hand and have adapted to doing single bevels right handed too. Makes your brain work more, keeps you sharper :D
