BladeForums Poll: Switching Hands During Sharpening

I started using the blade towards me, switching hands technique I learned from Vinnie/NeroKnives and Shawn/BBB. I find it allows you to always be looking at where the blade edge apex meets the stone. With a little practice it became normal.

being able to sharpen with either hand, forward or reverse, and in the dark where you cant see what you are doing has come in really handy for me a whole bunch of times :}

Performance above all else!!!

Joe,
Yeah, it's handy. You get bevels that are more even also, and you can see the apex/stone interaction better.
