NRA Convention Demonstration of EZE-LAP's Diamond Stone Knife Sharpener With Product Overview

People like videos. They love them. A lot. Most prefer BRIEF videos over reading, anything too lengthy or anything that has letters of the alphabet present for that matter. Content? It better be in video form. A VLOG for instance.

Anyway, this rhetoric has nothing to do with the below video I just had to post. It involves a diamond knife sharpener exhibited at the recent NRA Convention (see: Are You Sharpening Your Knife All Wrong? for full article at theblaze.com).

It's not so much the sharpener I wanted to bring to everyone's attention who didn't read the article or watch the video demo yet. It's the method in which the demonstrator, Ralph Johnson, sharpens. Using a "swirling" motion he produces a finer and sharper edge to a knife.


Ralph Johnson of EZE-LAP Diamond Products (eze-lap.com) shows us the best way to get the perfect edge on your knife at the 2014 NRA convention via video entitled "How to sharpen your knife" uploaded by YouTube user Jonathon M. Seidl.
