    Should I not look on YouTube for a good strategy on sharpening ? Is there a better place?

    I wouldn't. Others may think otherwise.

    What I would do, is get a Sharpie and cover the bevel with ink. Then run the blade down a sharpener a few times. Wherever ink is missing is where you're hitting the bevel and cutting edge correctly. It'll show you immediately what you're doing wrong (too steep of an angle, too little of an angle) and allow you to correct it and learn proper angles - which is 100% of sharpening.

    I'll try that, seems like a great idea to see exactly what I'm doing wrong. Thanks

    That's a nice looking knife. Seems a bit smaller than a BK14.

    i watched every video that Jdavis882 has on his youtube video channel a while back and learned a ton!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cznPI-mdWMg

    he does the black marker trick which is worth its weight in gold!! also you have to be consistent with the stroke and not change that angle at all

    that kershaw was fun to sharpen, it wouldn't cut printer paper when i got it, now it cuts fine strands of news paper

    Jdavis also stole a lot of money from a lot of people and then disappeared.

    He knew his shit, but fuck him.

    didn't know that, and just looked at his channel and he hasn't posted in 2 years!! His free hand technique is pretty sick though!! i had my pops build a version of the edge pro that i have mounted to my work bench and use the DMT credit card stones on which does a great job. Thinking of ordering a set of the edge pro diamond stones though, they are thinner and will work better on the smaller knives. The DMT's work great on kitchen knives just not on the smaller stuff

    any thoughts on those branded stones? @DCSBFTMFW or go with chosera stones ha ha ha

    So I have a cheap made in China knife, should I try sharpening that before the spyderco? Only problem is half of the bevel is serrated. Also, are you suppose to sharpen knives right when you receive it or when it becomes duller?

    I wouldn't bother sharpening a brand new knife, most are sharpened well from the maker.

    You could learn how to sharpen on the non-serrated edge of that knife and if you mess it up, no big loss.

    Yeah no big loss at all lol. With regular use, until how long would you sharpen a knife if you bought it new?

    back to bone stock.
    i like this method, but i found myself always reapplying the sharpie..and then getting lazy. so i tried something different and it worked for me. i bought a big magnifying glass. i could make a few sweeps and see immediately if i was too steep or too shallow.

    now i'm not a robot, so my angle isnt exactly perfect everytime,..but if you keep watching, you can see (and feel) it when it right. i'm learning, but getting better.

    i also found some 4 micron emulsion that cuts pretty fast. on a strop it is the best touch up or finish to a stone. (again, for me)
