Hi, my name is Lilly and I like spending time in nature to practice my survival and bushcraft skills. This is a holistic survival channel which means that besides wilderness survival I also do modern survival videos. Sometimes I use modern tools which people might have at hand in a real survival situation. Also all of my videos are pre-recorded, which mean that they do not get released immediately after I film then. That is why seasons in the video can differ from actual seasons. Thanks for watching ~ Survival Lilly

  1. Hi Lilly, great video and I love the fingertips tip for keeping your angle, very good idea! My WorkSharp has built in angles, which is nice, but the finger tips trick will work with some of my other stones. Thanks for sharing, Rock On!

  2. Hi there: I have found it helpful when using a small whet stone to use the whet stone onto the knife, it is not really any better but it saves the fingers from getting cut, I am an older outdoor Guy & I did a lot of backpacking when I was younger, some rocks can put an edge on a blade as well. but it is necessary to hold the rock in a hand onto the knife blade. good Job, Uncle Nick

  3. Please never sharpen your knife like that when you are tired. A pretty girl needs her finger tips. Makes me cringe just watching you.

  4. I like that technique you are using. I’m the same way. I keep knife sharpening simple. I just use one stone as well with a fine side, and a bit rougher side. I find that’s all I really need to keep a good serviceable eagerly on my knife in the field.

    If I’m going to shave with my knife I will also strop it on my pants a bit to refine the edge a little further. Cuts down on the shaving cuts 😉
