Great video Mors thanks for sharing you knowledge atb John
Well I guess I will say I have a lifetime of different sharpening experience.
Thanks a lot.. added to my fav’s
Wisdom of time spent. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Mors for another great video! Your in depth knowledge concerning everything bushcraft,is a great asset to us all! Keep up the good work!
It is interesting to watch someone with a life time of experience in any subject but surprising to hear some of the claims made. The idea that only a single bevel knife can make fine shavings is completely nonsensical. How this kind of claim not only gets made but is accepted is dumbfounding.
You are awesome, thank you
You are the man!! Thank you for such an amazing video! It was very helpful.
Thank you for the detailed explanation! NOW I actually understand…
Thanks Mors for sharing your knowledge with us all atb stuart
GREAT VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU…
Thanks, Mors. Another great tutorial from a living legend… you are a true wealth of knowledge.
Thanks much for all these videos and the knowledge and wisdom contained within.
It’s always good to learn from a true master.
Thank you Mr. Kochanski.
Thank you very much for taking the time to post this Video. I simply can’t wait for another one please :)) .
Is Mors recommending staying with a Mora Knife ?
Doesn’t too much stroping on leather eventually cause a convex edge. Thanks Mors for your knowledge
whoelse sharpened his knife while watching this video? 😀
Thanks so much Mors for sharing your knowledge on youtube, all the best to you and yours and a great xmas time, Taro
Isn’t it better to strop the knife on a hard surface?
Thank you, that was VERY helpful!
Excellent video, as always! But … I’m a little confused about heating the blade by stroping and rehardening it? I’am pretty sure that this way you can’t achieve higher Rockwell value! With lower temperatures (200-300 celsius) you can only temper the steel and it become softer than before … For hardening (quenching) blade it is necessary to achieve the critical temperature from about 800 celsius (depending on the steel).
I’d like to hear an explanation from someone if I’m wrong.
so, he’s saying a convex edge is useless for making feathersticks? how come, then, that my fallknivens produce beautiful curls with their convex edges, much better than my moras?
Thank you so much for this video! I see a lot of people tossing out ideas on this subject, but this looks like the real deal.
very concise tutorial mors your right a lot of people don’t know how to sharpen thier knives correctly again very concise will help a lot ..tom
Such great respect for this man. Everything he is saying from the strop to how the metal is removed to the pros and cons of a convex grind or micro bevel edge are all so very true. I been studying blade edge technology and hand sharpening for 4 years now and can say this mentor is dead on in what he is saying. Love to meet him one day.
Thank you for sharing ……
My only issue with this sharpening technique, or at least the theory behind it is the stropping “creating so much heat that it re-hardends the edge”. Carbon steel blades require around 1400 F to reach critical temp (hardening temp). So unless the apex of the blade is reaching that temperature it is impossible to make the steel harder. I’d also like to say that tempering is usually performed in the 300F-600F temp range on carbon steel blades, which I would guess that the strop is more likely to obtain. So in my thoughts, heating up the blade during stropping will soften the steel way before it hardens it. I heat treat steel as part of my occupation, and through my years of research specifically in carbon steels makes this difficult for me to swallow. I will end with Mors is a legend, and although it is possible for him to be wrong, I doubt it happens often when it comes to outdoor skills, and I appreciate all the work he does! thanks for the video!
Where’s Virtuovice when you need him?
where can I buy your book..
love to get I the mode you’re yours .. and get some great ideas. .

on ”Bush craft ”
That look at the end. Like a Boss!
thanks for this great informative video mors!
