i found a good site for sharpening knives while looking for info on how to sharpen my axe properly. this is much more than i need to know about sharpening; if i want them that sharp i'll go to a professional, but i found this interesting none-the-less.
Thanks Bucky!!! I just glanced at this link, but I can tell it will be really helpful. I have it bookmarked for future reference. I LOVE the thumb trick! That is the one reason I have not tried to learn how to sharpen myself. I was too nervous that I would not be able to estimate the right angle. This will help a ton I am sure. Great now I need to go buy a stone LOL
