Excellent, super helpful.

Ever put an American blade on a straight snath? You wouldn't want to give us a video of that stance and stroke, would you?

(Also, tiny proofreading remark- you mean a Lansky stone, right? Not Lanky?)

Yeah that should be Lansky...iMovie probably auto-"corrected" it, which is an annoying habit it has. :p Guess I'd better go fix that.

I've not personally put an American blade on a straight snath, but it'd be doable. You'd just need to really lift the tang angle and make sure your ring was able to tighten down on it securely.

Of course, now I can't go back and edit my OP, but here's the video re-uploaded with the spelling as it should be. :p
