Welcome back, in this episode I am going to show you how to sharpen a knife using a wet-stone.

Now it's pretty simple, here's how.

Soaking the Wet-Stone First important thing is you have to leave

the wet-stone in a water bath for about 15 minutes just to let all the water soak into

the stone, and this is important that's why it's called a wet-stone.

Leveling the Wet-Stone The second important step is to get the stone

completely level.

Draw a Pencil Grid Over the Stone What you want to do is you just want to draw

some lines with a pencil, just to create a grid so that you know what sections of the

stone are sharpened or not.

This is very important because it's very misleading to just look at a stone you just can't see

it -- there we go.

Use a Lower Grit Stone to Level your Higher Grit Stone

Okay, we simply take the other stone and your rub it against it, up and down just to get

all corners, like this, you can simply start seeing where the valleys and troughs are.

Now yes you can see it because this is dirty and that's not, but if it was all clean you

wouldn't know where it is.

After Removing the Pencil Grid Alright, so once you have sufficiently flattened

the surface what you want to do is just taper the edges off.

Now We Can Begin Sharpening Okay, so we start our sharpening process on

the lower grit, so this one is 1000 this side and the other side is 8000.
