Make a knife razor sharp

To get a razor sharp edge on a knife in a hurry I like to use a random orbit sander. This is a fast simple effective way to resharpen a knife that has a
truly dull blade.
  1. Use 120 grit sandpaper and follow the existing grind of the blade
  2. work both sides evenly until you can no longer see shiny spots on the blade edge
  3. finish this by using plain sandpaper on a sanding block to get the sharpest blade possible
Once you get your desired edge use extreme care because it will be sharp. Always carry fixed blade knives in a sheath and folders closed.
