Lefty! Good video dude, you need to crawl out from under your rock more often! Great job with the knife.

Nice job on the knife. Looks great.

You mention changing directions during the polishing stage. Could you explain which directions you polish the blade? and in what order? I understand the concept but I am ignorant to the procedure of traditional polishing.

Haha Jeff. Yell at my work ;)

Atang. Basically from ground work, (220 or less if thinning up to 4k) I use the usual 45 degree sharpening angle, then at 5k and 6-8k (nats used) I go in an up and down motion and for 10k and the next higher I go from side to side. Hope that makes sense lol.

If you scroll down they have a photo. I've adapted different stones, but would like to get a full set of traditional stones one day.

Thanks for the link. That would be a cool set-up. I'd love to get into finger polishing someday. Thanks.
