 Post subject: Tips for Forschner Boning Knife

I recently purchased the 8 piece sharpening kit and I'm learning how to sharpen the knives I have laying around.

While there is much improvement to be made, I've had some success with the straighter knives (pseudo chef's knife and pseduo nakiri knife). When I got to the Forschner boning knife, I fumbled around more and I couldn't get equivalent results. I seem to be struggling with the additional curvature and the "springiness" of the blade (the Forschner bends more than the other knives).

I've looked around for a video with a similar knife and I didn't turn one up.

Any technical tips or words of wisdom to improve?

Focus on one side of the edge...look at the line of the edge you are making then thin the other side accordingly. You shouldn't be creating a huge double bevel edge for the boning knife.

Less is more. Take your time.
