Knife Honing Answered

Would anyone be interested in an instructable on how to hone a blade to have a razor sharp edge? I have been working on my honing ability and I have gotten very good at it. I have a 4-inch knife that I can use to cut through a 1/2 - 1 inch peace of wood. I will put up vids of stuff that I cut as soon as I can find my camera.

Honing is making a knife or sword super sharp. If other people want this as an instructable then I will post.
