Here is my submission for the Tool Care - Sand - Sharpen a Knife BB.
I pulled out five knives to get some practice after watching the Knife Sharpener video. He inspired me to spend more time on each knife than I probably ever have.
This BB is for the Chicago Cultery paring knife as it had the biggest (most dramatic) change. When I first tried to cut the paper, the knife pushed the paper out of the way and did not cut or tear the paper.
Also, I used water and dr. Bronner's soap to wet and clean the stone. I did not use the whetstone oil that came with my stone.
To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
+ a picture of the knives about to be sharpened with a whetstone, whetstone oil, and dr. Bronner's soap - pic of the dull knife raggedly cutting through a piece of paper
- action pic of sharpening
- pic of the sharp knife having cut halfway through a piece of paper
