How to sharpen a bushcraft knife

When we’re teaching knife skills on our courses we always start with knife safety.  And one of the things we discuss is the importance of using a sharp knife.  So here’s a short video of Bob demonstrating how to sharpen a bushcraft knife using a Japanese waterstone and leather strop.

We teach how to sharpen a bushcraft knife on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses.  You can see photos from these courses, as well as all of our other courses, on our Facebook page and here on our own website.
