In the end, much of it comes down to personal preference. Slicing paper- This is a trick I feel most people already know. Making a knife sharp is the goal, but how do we know the knife is actually sharp.
Often the best test of how sharp a knife is to use the knife and see how it performs. You can spend several hundreds of dollars on a knife sharpening device like the wicked edge, and the results will be similar to the belt grinder, a shaving sharp knife edge. This is a fun, easy activity that can require few tools. Having to work harder to slice through whatever youre cutting means youre more likely to cut yourself. Also, there are different ways to sharpen a blade depending on what youll be using your knife for- whittling, cooking, etc. I'm sorry that Nikon put a menu called Shooting inside a menu called Custom Setting, since it has nothing to do with the larger Shooting Menu.
The grinding belts I use are from supergrits. Obviously a sharp knife should be able to cut a variety of things. Using a Whetstone or a Diamond Stone. Presumably that's part of the problem. Sharpening at a different angle will take significantly more time and may take a few goes before any rough angles are smoothed out.
