Pocket Knife from Junky Multitool

Step 5: Sharpening

I couldn't find my dads oil stone so I use a Kitchen knife sharpener that was quick and easy. I being my clumsy teenage self, cut through my thumb and a fourth of my fingernail with the knife sharpening. So I tell all now: Watch where your fingers are!

If you didn't know this, you want to sharpen the edge of the knife until it isn't shiny. On a dull knife, the edge is shiny. On a sharp knife, the edge is so keen (sharp) you can't see it.

Oh, so that's why it wouldn't cut the lace but slipped and blew open my thumb. Haha, i will remember that Boy Scout. Thanks :D
