But no matter how precisely I follow online video or written guides I don't seem to get a satisfactory result.
Even though I grind several (+20) time on each side, and for several minutes I am not able to form this burr that is important according to videos. Should I always be abble to detect a burr ? Or will the steel quality impact on the burr-size ?
I use an angle of 15 degrees. And after the following honing the knives are not as sharp as expected. And nowhere near to pass the paper test.
I have used a marker and a magnifying glass to check the angle is ok. It seems so.
I am a not sure if I am using the right angle when honing. How critical is the honing angle? As there is no guide supplied.
And for how long should I hone How critical I cannot "hear the burr" as stated in some videos.
Does anyone have some tips for a frustrated amateur
