Today I was considering doing a video and pulled out a knife I hadn't looked at in a while. It's a Sabatier that I'd purchased and sharpened for my friend, Chef Rocky Durham, over a year ago.I thought I might start with doing a little hanging hair test (HHT) but was surprised to see that the knife wouldn't even shave my forearm hair. When I last checked it, after the original sharpening, it was easily passing the HHT, so it was odd that it now wouldn't even shave. It turns out that oxidation had dulled the blade significantly. Oxide deposits had thickened the edge enough that it lost its keenness. I did a little bit of stropping with 1.0/0.5 micron diamond spray on cow leather strops. It quickly got back to shaving and when I moistened the 0.5 micron strop with rubbing alcohol and stropped again, it was able to pass the HHT pretty easily.
