    Lol! I had to laugh when I heard the exact same comments repeated by you. My thoughts on sharpening this tiny v was the same! Toss it and buy another lol! Seriously though…thank you. The sandpaper was a great suggestion and then the leather. Not many choices on this tool. Thank you for all the video’s (this one especially).

    I am a retired high school teacher and grammatical and typographical errors always jump out at me. Your description of this video reads

    “We will… learn how to challenging technique of sharpening this special tool.”

    Perhaps you intended to ” learn how to MASTER THIS challenging…” or something similar? Love your work and teaching techniques.
