It's soothing, sharpening knives with a whetstone.

A little meditation.

Fair enough. I  just use a sharpening steel. But the Accusharp do an ok job for light use. 

It's not really a sharpening steel. It's a honing steel. I like the distinction, because at a certain point it will not actually sharpent your knife as well because you need a rougher material to do so. 


A few more tidbits. If you buy a new knife, be careful using it because an extremely sharp knife can chip. Especially on knives with steep cutting angles. 

It should be very rarely you need to use very coarse material to sharpent a knife. That is used more to take the knife down because there is a chip. Usually a medium grit is good to take of a small bit of material then a finer grit to finish the edge. Then a honing steel to just keep the edge straight and keep the edge longer. Even over a certain point the honing steel will not put an edge back on like a wetstone or other sharpeners.

It's also fun to do when your daughter has a date picking her up. 😉

Anyone else like to pickle foods? These were some Lil Smokies that a pickled a few weeks ago. E2D775D1-FC8B-40C8-8B27-4006CB4CA18C.jpeg

the Accusharp is decent and requires no skill level to use. 

I take an accusharp with me to AirBnB or VRBO rentals, where usually the house has cheap, dull knives. It's great for a quick and easy sharpening.

I used to sharpen knives with a whetstone too. That’s how my dad did it. Hunting and fishing knives.

I’ve been sharpening with a whetstone for over 20 years now and I prefer it over an actual sharpener because it removes less steel from my knives.

My dad always carries a little oil stone in his backpack that he sharpens his camping/fishing knives with. That's how I learned to sharpen knives. He's an old school boy scout "always be prepared" type.

I used to always use a set of Japanese sharpening stones for my nicer knives. IMO using a stone is the best way to sharpen if you're willing to learn how to do it, and buy some decent stones. I tested the sharpness of my knives by shaving a strip of hair off my left arm. My friends always asked why my left forearm was shaved, and when I explained it to them, I got the nickname "sharpener", and started getting requests to sharpen everyone's knives. These days, I take my expensive knives to a local Japanese knife and tool shop for sharpening, and the rest get sharpened every couple months with the Work Sharp.

I hone my knives with every use. To sharpen them I use a whetstone. I’ve been sharpening with a whetstone for over 20 years now and I prefer it over an actual sharpener because it removes less steel from my knives.

I always hone them before use too. The belt sharpener I have does a better job than I could do with the whetstone.

I make my own pickles and pickled red onion. I use this recipe. I do cut the sugar a bit though.

Here's a quick way to make pickles in 30 minutes. This quick and simple recipe makes sweet and sour pickle slices for sandwiches perfect for mounding on hamburgers, deli meats, pulled pork

You’re really selling yourself short, man. It’s not particularly difficult and because you’re not taking off too much material at a time, you really can’t f*** up a knife to the point that it’s irreparable.

I have been using Truvia instead of sugar. I can't tell a difference. I love pickled eggs / meat, but I don't like pickles. Something about the way it crunches... I will put pickle juice on sandwiches though.

I should try Truvia. I use it in my coffee. I also use pickle juice in sandwiches and other recipes.

My wife convinced me to buy some Cutco knives.   They will actually come to the house to sharpen our knives for the life of the knives.   They weren't cheap but work extremely well.

So maybe I give the whetstone a try before getting Scott’s flux capacitor Ken Onion sharpener?

I mean I would, but of course I don’t own a knife sharpener 😃

Yeah,  I’m have a honing steel, which is used as required, 10 - 15 times a day. My knives are always proper sharp.  I also have a dual sided whetstone, and  use the Accusharp infrequently. As you say it’s more about re-applying the edge.

Pickled eggs are a big seller round these ways.  Chilli, whole black peppercorns, bay leaves and mustard seed with a malt vinegar based pickling juice. They go well with a pint.

I used that Work Sharp Sharpener. It took me like 5 minutes to sharpen a knife. 

Here is a sharp test result. 

That is my Victorinox knife I've had for about around 10 years. I use it 5-6 times a week.

    • And yet the NFL and NCAA exist and the others do not. So who really won? No damages awarded? Pyrrhic victory at best. LIV only exists to try and take the PGAT down. They will fail as the others did. Your argument is still very weak.
    • Day 59 (12 Aug 22) a rainy inside day, worked on lag putts from about 15’ and chipping whiffle balls into a small bucket (the latter is a constant game with the grandson - he was my chipping partner today).  
    • Day 284, August 12, 2022 Played Nicholas Memorial GC in WV on my way to NC.
    • You can search the topic, and yes, it has been mentioned. Recently. Not the PGA Tour's fault that there's no "meaningful choice." Plus the word "meaningful" is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. They have a choice. They have several choices. PGA Tour players make about the same percentage of what their sport creates as players in other sports. Golf is a niche sport. It's not the freaking NFL. It's not even the NHL. The law hasn't spoken on this. So, no, not "regardless of the law." And, let's remember, the TRO was denied. If the judge felt the suspensions were not legal, that would have played a role in her granting the TRO.
