Here is my knife sharpening BB. Blunt tearing of an envelope. Sharpening set up and two stages of sharpening and honing of one of the knives and then the final sharp cutting of the same envelope.

Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for the Tool Care - Sand - Sharpen a Knife BB.

I pulled out five knives to get some practice after watching the Knife Sharpener video.  He inspired me to spend more time on each knife than I probably ever have.  
This BB is for the Chicago Cultery paring knife as it had the biggest (most dramatic) change.  When I first tried to cut the paper, the knife pushed the paper out of the way and did not cut or tear the paper.
Also, I used water and dr. Bronner's soap to wet and clean the stone.  I did not use the whetstone oil that came with my stone.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
 + a picture of the knives about to be sharpened with a whetstone, whetstone oil, and dr. Bronner's soap
 - pic of the dull knife raggedly cutting through a piece of paper
 - action pic of sharpening
 - pic of the sharp knife having cut halfway through a piece of paper
