    Excellent tutorial!

    The is only one thing I would add in step one, is clean even if you don't see anything to clean. Tape and glue residue may not be seen, but it is there. I find hand sanitizer is good for removing tape/glue fowling.
    Sometimes that plus a good stropping is all that is needed.

    Mineral spirits on a soft cloth (usually labeled "paint thinner" in hardware stores...) will remove any tape residue on just about anything... The only caution is whether it might dull the finish on some painted or plastic surfaces... I've been using if or years as a rodcrafter and a guy who occasionally does a bit of fiberglass work where taped off surfaces are part of the deal....

    Pretty much what I do. I like the wording on finding the angle as that is precisely what I do. The DMT people also showed me this approach.

    Added: Sharpening knives by hand on stones is a learned skill. It is not particularly hard, but it can be very frustrating especially if you lack patience. The AG Russell sharpening summary is about all a person needs to develop sharpening skills. I also use DMT bench stones. I am not particularly anal about how sharp a knife is, but I like them sharp.
