Great info for the beginners who haven't done much sharpening. I have done a lot due to a love of knives, swords, and pretty much anything sharp and pointy. So this wasn't really for me but I can appreciate the sharing of info for those who might need it. A lot of people do feel intimidated about sharpening. A lot of good tips for the beginner here.
