Knife sharpening using the Bubble Jig.

This video demonstrates how to use the Jig to establish a symmetric even edge on a blade.
It is very simple and very effective in producing a straight and even edge from ricasso to tip.

Happy to answer any questions you might have.

Fred, another fine video. They seem to just get better.
I made a "Knife Dogs Knife" at the New England School of Metalwork while I was teaching there and used my new Bubble Jig to finish the forged bevels. After a little bit of practice I was moving on along. Thanks.

Morning Wayne,
Its good to hear that your trip went well. I was a little concerned about your stop at IG's.

I learn a little more each time we make a new video. If I live long enough I may head out to California and try my luck.cool 1

Stay in touch, Fred

You are quite welcome. My son, Kevin shoots the videos and edits for me. He is due much of the credit.






Good video, I like the diamond sharpener, what grit is it?

Hi Ernie,
Its a 4" x 10" inch surface which is nice for the big knives I make. I believe its med on one side and fine on the other. It cost a hundred bucks and when I bought it, seemed like a lot of money but it has paid for itself many times over.
