I have a marking knife that really needs sharpening. And I’m not worth diddly-squat with freehand sharpening – seems I always round the bevel. I’ve read all about locking your wrists and twisting your body and dancing a jig while standing on your head and all that – didn’t do any good.
Anyone have any tips for this? I can’t for the life of me figure out how to make a jig to hold the angle on this short knife. It is a single edged knife, not a spear point which should make it easier, I suppose.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
