800 and 1600 wet-stones finished with a strop.
A Condor Hudson Bay Knife
Sharpened both my case stockman and my Spyderco delica.
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.
Used it to make my curls and feather stix.
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.
Here’s my knife sharpening submission.
After watching a video from @IA Woodsman , this is going into my fire kit.
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.
Here it is sharpened up my bag knife
Mora with bmt stone from bag. Normally use it wet
Convex 3V Adventure Sworn Guide thinned and sharpened using sandpaper, diamond lapping film, and a leather strop
My old timer pocket knive
If only I was more hairy it would show up better but stone and porcelain do the trick for me.
I rarely let my knives get truly dull, but I touched this one up on the water stone. I also used my ceramic honing rod. Now onto my work knives.
Paper since I didn't finish reading the directions before I shaved my arm.
