I noticed you don’t lap the back of the blade. Don’t you think it’s needed?

When you sharpen the bevel, the metal is going to roll over the edge. I’d bet if you rub your finger up the back of the knife you would feel the steel rolled over. No?

Great point, you’re absolutely right. The edge will have a burr if you don’t lap the back after honing. Also just as important the backs of the knives should be flattened to a mirror finish before sharpening and honing. I’ve made two very poor videos so far. I’m going to get some help shooting any others. I’ll be sure to do all the steps next time except flattening the backs. It takes way too long for a video. It’s a royal pain but you only have to flatten the back once when you first get them. I actually hooked a windshield wiper motor up to a jig for flattening the backs of my knives because it takes so long. I use diamond-lapping plates with a pump running water over them. Thank you for your reply, Dan
