This video tutorial will show you how to make your bushcraft knife as sharp as possible by using the Japanese Water Stone. This Bushman how-to video will give you full instructions on how to use the stone plus an introduction to a lighter method.
So, get out your water stone and dip it in water, to soak up the H2O. Then, put your knife's blade on the stone and begin sharpening in a slow manner. To sharpen the bushcraft knife without the bulk of the water stone, use a more portable blade sharpener with a steel plate encrusted with diamonds.
