I saw this YouTube video right after it was posted. I intended to post the link earlier, but TG, Christmas, new granddaughter being delivered as I type. So, if you have a bit of an analytical mind like me, this is an interesting watch. It can easily confirm what you already know about your sharpener, or give you some ideas for a new one. Heck, you could tell Santa about something you see!

No whetstones were harmed in the making of this video.

Interesting video. I've had the Lansky for 40 yrs at least and don't use it often enough.
And congrats on the new grand !
And they sure are grand !

She was born 8 minutes after my first post. Her mother had a full head of dark hair when she was born. And so does little Hannah.

I love stone sharpening. The video was a great way to show the efficiency of the devices that achieve similar results.
