    The title is wrong, it should be "How to ruin your knife"

    she looks like she is going to chop her fingers off, the way she is waving the blade around.

    the coments are great

    its no wonder, that she did indeed cut herself on thanksgiving .... imagine hacking away at a frozen turkey with that old hunk of junk ...... and that crap knife

    bare feet ... right at the end



    I bet she has cut herself loads of times.

    she nearly did it again in this clip.

    Re: The BEST Sharpening video on YouTube.....?

    Thank you for posting such an illuminating and helpful piece my friend. NOW I know where I've been going wrong all these years. I shall have to ammend my ways and start sharpening towards my hand at a 45 degree angle from now on so that I can be certain of getting a decent edge on my knives at last

    P.S. If that's the correct way to do the job I'm obviously qualified to do brain surgery, quantum physics and inter-stella navigation via wormholes. I shall now rush off and make some "How to" clips for YouTube on the subjects !
    If it's not sharp, it's just a piece of metal.

    The rubbish sharpening vid is a genre in its own right - where's Barry Norman when you need him?
