I get a ton of questions as to how to sharpen and maintain a knife with a convex edge such as a Bark River Knife. Since a picture is worth 1000 words, I figure a video would be worth a ton more!
We had a contest to see who could make the best instructional video on sharpening and this is the winner. The entire video is about 30 minutes long. I recommend watching the whole thing—it is the very best explanation of sharpening I have ever seen. He covers everything from making your own leather strop to using a Bark River Leather Hone or one of our leather strops.
If you only watch one chapter, watch the one on using the KnivesShipFree leather hone. It covers everything very quickly.
After watchng these great knife sharpening videos, you will be able to sharpen your Bark River Knife, or any knife, for that matter, with ease.
