I can use (and teach the use of) a steel, but I've never used a proper
whetstone/sharpening stone on a kitchen knife.  Agricultural
implements yes, briefly, but they weren't supposed to get actually

Would definitely be interested in learning, and will demonstrate
steeling (on not-too-good knives) if it's wanted.

Sam Kelly,

That's it.  We're not messing around anymore, we're buying a bigger
dictionary.  -  Tibor Fischer, The Thought Gang.
