Sharpening 101: A Lesson in Cutting the Cheese?
Here’s an outtake from our recent Sharpening Doctor video series, in which Gary Rogowski helped a couple of readers improve their sharpening skills. We didn’t have room for this segment in the original videos, despite the good advice, but it’s worth sharing.
One of the fun – and sometimes challenging – things about working with Gary is watching him improvise, making props out of whatever is handy. In this case, it was the mid-morning snack. The brilliant thing is, the demo works rather nicely. It makes me wish all the more that the tape had been rolling when Gary honed a spokeshave iron with an onion bagel…
Seriously, let me know what you think about this clip, and about the Sharpening Doctor videos in general. We’d like to do more of these Doctor articles and videos in the future, too, so comment here if you’re interested or send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
