I want to start using my edge pro chosera set but I have no experience sharpening at all, my main worry is that if I watch a bad instructional video I will be ruining my knives and i will have no idea why.

Can anyone recommend a comprehensive instructional video (or series) that shows exactly how to use the sharpener as well as how to progress with the stones?

You mean something in addition to what Ben provides on his DVD? Did you get that with your machine?

The Edge Pro used to come with a DVD, but I guess it no longer does.

Ben Dale, the inventor and manufacturer, has a series of videos on his website:

Well mainly I am looking for a video showing how to progress with the chosera set, I've never sharpened before and I'm kind of worried that I will spent to much or to little time on each stone and I wont know i'm doing anything wrong (I've seen Ben's videos so i guess what i am really missing is a video showing how to use the chosera stones).

The same principles and technique apply no matter what stones you use.

in that case, could someone recommend a video that can instruct me on those principles?

You say you have seen Ben's videos. What about Ben's videos do you have questions about? You start with a coarse stone, raise a burr, then move to the next higher grit. Repeat until done. What more are you looking for?

Use a magic marker and mark the edge. Then sharpen to remove the mark and keep working with your lowest stone until you get a burr along the whole edge. Then, flip over and repeat. Then Move up a grit and from then on you should have and easy time of it since the edge should be ground. I've been procrastinating for years on doing a series of instructional videos on the edge pro for beginners. I'll see if I can work on it soon.

Practice on some beater knives first - there is somewhat of a learning curve to master.

Concentrate with each stroke.

Use light pressure - let the stones to the work.
