Ever have one of those sharpening sessions when everything just seems to go your way.

(Am I the only one who thinks of MadRookie when sharpening a knife like this?)

A young fella calls me and says he has a hand made hunting knife that his girlfriend gave him but it had no edge, someone tried to sharpen it on a grinder but the knife found it's way to me, truly enjoyable work. It really is a beautiful knife.

Beautiful job! Now that's what I call a stone progression ;-). How long did the job take?

Thanks Steve, it took me about 70 minutes.
I could have skipped some stones but what the heck.

Now that is a super linear edge to be proud of - very few can maintain such a consistent bevel width on a knife shape like that!

Well done Sailor!!

:)
