Laura: So Dick, what do you have there now?
Dick: Well, I got some tools for sharpening knives and axes.
Laura: Why do we need some sharp axes and knives?
Dick: Well, they simply do not function, they are not efficient.
Dick: But also very importantly is they are dangerous because when the axes hits the surface and it is not sharp, it can ricochet, the same thing too in a knife, and if you are in the way—big trouble.
Laura: Of course
Dick: So what do we got here, we got axe pile that got two different phases on it, it is work just fine for axes. Here is carbon random stone which is standard stone that commonly used. This is axe stone which is used in circular fashion with the axe and then we move from the stone age into diamond age and we got tools that are really amazing and that we can put to use right now.
Laura: Great, let us go.
Dick: Okay well, Laura, let us just see how the sharpening business is done.
Dick: I got the big stone here which a kind that you have in your base camp or home and with that I am going to take a knife such you would have a long for doing fish or that sort of thing. You got the water on here out my drinking cup and some strokes, you can hear this action of the diamond on there, do you hear that sound? Okay, that is all the strokes it takes, I wipe it off, we have a sharp edge. I want to give it a try.
Laura Really, awesome thanks, Oh! Dick, that is incredible!
Dick: Yes, it is.
Dick: So, now what we need to do is sharpen that most common knife that camper’s carry which is a Swiss Knife that you know. And so I am going apply the same kind of technique here, only I am holding the knife blade still I am stroking the knife blade and I turn it over and I am always stroking into the edge, you notice. I turn it over and one more time there, wipe it off, ready to go okay.
Now, how we do in axe? Same basic principle and here now, I am going to do the same kind of stroking action as I did before into the edge like this, turn it over knock off bur, it is ready to use
Laura: Fantastic, well done.
Dick: So anyway, why do you have a sharp tool in the bush, whether you are cutting a loaf of bread, opening up a fish or whatever, you want that plus the safety factor.
