    Had a conversation with a buddy on a recent camping trip about not liking how rapidly his kitchen knives lost their edge.

    I mentioned using coffee cup and made a quick vid to share showing the most often method I use to keep an edge on.

    After a dozen or so reconditionings it is usually time to take them back to a stone, but this works very well on "Western" style kitchen cutlery.

    Rudimentary but works. Showed my dad this about 3 years ago after he didn't believe me (the man that taught me how to sharpen my first knife). Heck after becoming an electrichicken he didn't even buy honing an edge on old ceramic tubes from knob and tube wiring. Shows you can teach old dogs new tricks.

    Years ago I was visiting my daughter when she was in college. I sharpened all her knives using some ceramic bowls that she and her room mates had. Took a while, but got it done.
