What. I'm not like that. You wound me. I trust that you speak from the heart. Just make sure to keep your knives sharp, and your CI properly seasoned and I'm a happy man.
And SP, so glad the honing technique worked for you. I wish I was the guy who invented it. Alas, I saw a professional knife sharpener demonstrate the 5-4-3-2-1 technique. I simply combined it with the back-steal technique that I got from Chicago Cutlery instructions with a knife set I purchased 30-some years back.
Then again, I don't always have to re-invent the wheel. I can use and share what some pretty clever people learned before me.
