Okay, here I am Friday morning, my once laser sharp focus, quick wit and incomparable intellect reduced to a puddle of oozing incompetence. I got nothing for articles for pre-posting the weekend. As you all know from endless monotonous repetition, I can out-write almost anyone in the time frame I’m allowed, but I MUST have an idea first. So I’m reduced to the worst kind of time wasting activity outside afternoon TV judge shows, cruising E-Bay for land sales and watching U-Tube instruction video’s ( just to reflect how unfocused I am ). Nothing on E-Bay, other than to report the supply of junk land seems to be shrinking. I wouldn’t wait forever. Also, a great five acre lot here in northern Nevada for a mere $6k financed. It is even close to the Little Humbolt river. The catch is, it’s 40 friggin miles from Winnemucca. Good luck on that commute. But then I come across a knife sharpening video. Russian Knife Sharpening, or some such.
He does the now standard improvised sharpening by using the underside of a ceramic mug, using the ring of unglazed material. He also shows how to use two knives to sharpen each other ( looking like the butcher knife/sharpening rod action where both hands are moving at an angle ), but warns without the proper angle you will dull them. He DOESN’T show how to achieve that, not that I could see. But another technique is to use the top of an automobile side window. Lower the window and use the top edge, the frosted part. This might be a neat piece of sharpening improvisation come the collapse and the number of junk cars out there ( better to use them for solar heating/cooking, but you might have enough for both ). On another video, a guy was claiming he has kept the same disposable razor blade going for nearly two years by rubbing it backwards up the back ( one assumes because it is hairless ) of his arm ( the dull side, not the sharp one, being drawn up ).
