QuietOne has probably forgotten more about knife sharpening than I'll learn in a lifetime, hopefully he can chip in.
Monty3777 has also posted quite a bit on knife sharpening, and written about it on his blog.
Shelter me from the powder and the finger
Cover me with the thought that pulled the trigger
Think of me as one you'd never figured
Would fade away so young With so much left undone
