Can I sharpen a machete with concrete? Answered
Hi, so I bought a machete in Costa Rica, but it's not very sharp at all. I want to be able to cut open a coconut with it, so I need it to be relatively sharp. I found a video of a guy sharpening his blade on a regular, large, flat stone using only water. I can't find a large flat stone to sharpen it with, but I happen to have a large, flat, concrete surface, conveniently located in my basement (it's the floor). Using water, can I sharpen my machete on the concrete surface, much like the guy in the video did on the rock? He pretty much just moved it in a circular pattern, at an angle to the rock. I don't want to invest any money on this, so please let me know if this is possible.
