    Sharpened both my case stockman and my Spyderco delica. 77AD4D13-E581-470F-8BCF-5996FDF05672.jpeg 758703F0-BBE4-430D-BBE3-A065F8E26D1D.jpeg
    I did better on the Spyderco. It was fun. I definitely improved after watching the tutorial video. Thanks!
    I look forward to continuing to improve this skill.

    Okay here's mine! I've definitely gotten better at my sharpening skills, which is good because I've been practicing a lot!

    Before: super dull, tearing the paper.

    Sharpening process: It looks like I have really big man boobs in this picture. It's the way the shirt is hanging I swear!

    and the finished product: I only wear shorts and should have thought this through.

    I used my lansky puck first (I know it's for axes but I needed a coarser grit and it was all I had. Bushcrafting is about improvising right?) for just a few passes because I intentionally let this knife get really dull. Than I used my 3,000/10,000 grit stone and stropped a bit afterward.

    After watching a video from @IA Woodsman , this is going into my fire kit. :dblthumb:
    Started on my grandpas two sided stone, followed by a Diamond King straight razor hone, followed by a ride on my horse hide straight razor strop.
