He always says the same thing cut away from your hands.

Jim is a smart man. I use knives a lot (mostly in cooking). I lost the one that I made. I'll have to forge another one. I sharpen them with stones and jeweler's rouge on a strop. I use a ceramic rod for touch up. Two things I know about knives: 1) There are more reasons to keep them sharp than there are to let them get dull. 2) Because of 1), always always always find a way to keep the edge traveling in a direction away from all parts of your body that you wish to keep.
