VIDEO: How to Sharpen Your Knife with a Car Window

A sharp knife is a safe knife, and sometimes you just need to give the blade a quick touch up to keep that keen edge. However, we don’t always have the equipment we need to keep our blades at their sharpest. In this video Tyler shows us how you can use the top of a car window to hone the edge of your blade.

Depending on the specific car window you’re using you might have a higher or lower “grit”, but regardless of that, if you use the technique Tyler demonstrates you’ll have a sharper blade than what you started with.

Tyler White is one of those rare creators of online survival content who is amply qualified. Growing up on a ranch, Tyler learned about homesteading and preparedness as a way of life, taught by grandparents who had lived through the Great Depression. Although he had already worked at a guide in Alaska, served with U.S. Army, Tyler knew there was more to primitive survival than he could learn from military schools or other outdoorsmen. His passion for primitive survival drove him on a quest to track down the most knowledgeable instructors in the field, traveling from Utah to the Amazon to Canada and finally back to Utah. Like all competent survivalists, Tyler has experience in a broad range of subjects. Highlights from his background includes criminal justice, law enforcement, archery, small arms, amateur radio, farming, gardening, raising cattle, and poultry. He has attended classified schools, worked in law enforcement, studied too many martial arts to list, and achieved the rank of 2nd Dan in Shōrin-ryū karate.
