If you can shave your girlfriends bikini area while she sleeps at night WITHOUT WAKING HER UP, you have a crazy sharp knife. Unfortunately mine was not crazy sharp.

I actually thought about doing the shaving method to test for sharpness. Haha!
Berlin Wall (25 days ago)
Jeez, I thought it was legit. I don't know much about knives so I really believed it up until an embarrassing point. This is how I found out I was an idiot.

What knife was used in this video?
jimihenrik11 (1 month ago)
Sorry, bur if you don't cut yourself when performing that thumb test the knife is not as sharp as it could be. I once saw a nice kitchen knife in a store and wanted to try the sharpness like that. It cut into my thumb without even pressing in the skin the slightest. I didn't realize I touched the blade until I saw the blood.

Flinch Fu (1 month ago)
Chopping toilet paper is a good way too. The fibers are soft, fragile and extremely tiny, if you can make a clean cut without frays or rips it's pretty damn sharp. I normally hold up a couple squares and give it a flat vertical chop. Just watch your fingers when you try it.
Robert White (1 month ago)
OMG, I'm not the only one who licks the knife edge to check the sharpness .

There were actually more tests in this video to find out if you are an idiot than there were to find out if you have a sharp knife :D

What??? Edging a blade before adding guard and handle? Edging was the last step I performed before inserting the blade in the sheath.
Jeez Scott (1 month ago)
can a person make razor sharp edge without a machine? cause they didn't have electrical grinder out in the bush did they, so in saying that can you sharpen a knife without a electrical grinder. Grandpa would shave with a knife after he sharpened a knife and I thought papa was crazy . make video on that techneque and my spelling isn't that good. Its a challenge and I'm calling you out in public and do it without a machine . so lets see you do it saying your the best and I think your not the machine is the sharpener.

....another great way to test if your knife is sharp is to run it across the head of your cock. If it cuts it cuts the head off effortlessly, then it's sharp.
Really great information and techniques

That's quite a dull knife. A sandstone sharpened knife would have gone through his thumb and tongue like butter.

You can feel how sharp an edge is with the one thumb method he’s talking about just pull downwards a bit more rather than straight across like he did.
Bilal Hasan (3 months ago)
A "Do not try this at home" would be nice
shonuffisthemaster (3 months ago)
all i see is a basic level of sharpness, probably ok for a "factory" edge but nothing to brag about. if it was seriously sharp, you should not be able to put your thumb on it with that kind of force and move it back and forth without cuting your thumb. paper slicing is an extremely basic test, arm hair shaving at the skin level is a bit better but still not perticularly impressive. I wouldnt expect much more from a knife that was ground on an fairly coarse belt and then power stropped right after with no other refinement, no matter what kind of magic japanese only stropping wheel you claim to have. split some hairs, or push cut a ripe tomato and i will be impressed. or better yet just do a thread test because thats the most accurate and least subjective test you can do with matereals most people have acess to. compare it to a feather carbon double edged razor blade and if your getting close to that sharpness, ill be impressed.
if u want to kill somewone u can easly do it with a pen :)

Londinium Armoury (5 months ago)
Why is it sparking if it's a pure leather belt? Are you sure that belt doesn't have some form of oxide coating? I'm not being a jerk I really don't understand, and just want to know what's causing the sparks, does leather friction cause sparking?

I shave the hair of my arm, and that’s sharp enough for me
CMAenergy (5 months ago)
Your method of testing for sharpness is fine, But how you sharpen your blades is another I would consider useless.. AS a machinist for many years, one cuts grinds into the steel always, (never dragging) and you leave no burr on the edge of the blade to play with, then you hone or lap after that to get a razors edge,

Knife people are weird but in a super lovable kind of way
ciderandthorazine (7 months ago)
my sharpness test is to see if the blade will glide silently through medium-weight cigarette-rolling paper (green/red rizla papers). i think it's a pretty good test, because those papers are fastidiously uniform. true push-cuts are only possible with extremely acute geometries, but it seems an edge that will gladly pull through in a slow slice is equivalent to a very comfortable shaving edge. smoking's a mug's game, but why not use the superfine, super-consistent papers y'can get in the local store for a few cents? anyways, that's my system.

Arellano Nino (7 months ago)
Hey brother thank you for the great video, hopefully you can answer a couple of questions. When taking the burr off what kind of paste do you use , what is the difference in using a felt wheel or your Japanese wheel and lastly what do you mean about when using a 180 grit you the the rpms into account.

another way to test sharpness of a knife is to put it in your ass and if it cuts you on the way in or out its razor sharp.
AN Prod. (8 months ago)
I just HATE the camera guys... whats wrong with the FOCUS! And some of your ways to test if your knife is razor sharp are so dumb.
Neo Neo (8 months ago)
Yea i just rub an sharp knife on my forearm just like you do when you get rid of the fillets of an fish you know on the skin. And i do that to myself and if it’s sharp my layer of skin will turn to tiny tiny white crumbs and if it’s not sharp nothing will happen.

music was a bit epic and loud to go through so much of the video especially of parts where you are talking. kind of distracting. the actual content is great though.
