Step 2: The Knife and The Saw
To sharpen your knife/saw we first have to understand what a knife/saw is. A knife is actually a double inclined plane which we call wedge. To make this simple machine more efficient we have to make the edge as thin as possible but thick enough to withstand the material you are cutting.
A saw is a knife w/ zigzags or curves.
1. Get the whetting stone. Dip it in water.
2. Dip the knife in water
3.Put the blade on the Whetting stone
4.With the edge pointed at you, push the knife/saw away while making sure that it is rubbing against the whetting stone.
5.do this repeatedly until when you feel that the side of the blade is rough when you rub your finger on the side of the blade.
6.Do procedure no 4-5 with the other side.
7.If your saw is curved only at on side (like mine) Do it only on the side without curves.
