My First Knife Sharpening: Using a Whetstone

in #kniveslast month


I've Never Sharpened a Knife Before!

We have knives in the house, but they get very dull over time. I recently purchased a whetstone to sharpen knives!


We submerged our stone in water for five minutes. I can see little bubbles coming up as it fills with water.


The red side is 1000 grit and the white side is 6000 grit.


It comes with a base that prevents the stone from moving around while sharpening.

Teach Your Children Liberty from Sin

We encourage parents to teach their children principles of Godliness, beginning with the Word and an understanding who God is and what His Son has done to form a relationship with us.

No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13

Teach Your children Liberty from Tyranny

Second to this is the principle of self-determination and freedom, lest we loose the ability to teach our children the first principle in future generations. Our children read the Tuttle Twin books, specifically to learn libertarian principles, which most people learn later in life. These books are useful for our family, and yours, to teach children concepts that seem complicated, but are made simple in these books.

Check out the Knife Community @deadspace just announced for future posts like these. :)

I agree, come on over to my community and post more knife things! As long as it's not you deciding to sharpen your knives on a ceramic mug like a caveman, that would just make my genitals shrivel up and die.

I don't want anything bad to happen to your genitals, that would be awful.

Thank you!

This is great. Good stuff to know. And I support your teaching guiding principles that you hold dear to your children. Will get those books for any children that happen my way - very few of those at present!

Our family enjoys the Tuttle Twin books, keep a look out - they offer mega-sales a few times a year. They make GREAT gifts!
