  6. i can sharpen my pocket knife.Thanks for the tips.

  7. The axe/hatchet sharpening is correct. The knife sharpening is only partially correct.

    Alternate from one side of the blade to the other. NEVER continuously hone one side of the blade. This creates an uneven bevel.

  10. Axe sharpening info is incomplete. You should mention that a burr will be formed on the opposite side of the blade that you’re filing on, then tell us how to get rid of the burr edge, strop the blade, etc. Also, we were taught to make a long, single file strokes from the near end of the blade to the far end. Your method of filing in small sections most likely will lead to uneven sharpening.
