I don't understand what I'm looking at. Is he grinding a knife blade from scratch?

Yes. But the smart thing is that he created a homemade jig that keeps the bevel of the blade at a consistent angle. It's a lot of work filing away at that blade, and it's easy to get sloppy. His jig prevents that.

The idea is not a groundbreaking new one, but it's nothing I taught him, and he cobbled together 6 different items to work together to give him what he was looking for.

It's not the cure for cancer, but it's showing some thought.

Yes indeed, quite clever. That's the way my Lansky sharpener works.
