he maintained proper angles before setting the micro-bevel.  never used excessive pressures.  basically touching up the sharpening service.  what was so horrible?

Maybe it's okay for touch ups.  I wouldn't do serious work this way.  Especially thinning or bevel setting, you could easily slip and cut yourself.  You can't apply even pressure with the stone up in the air like this.

This is setting up the edge with no micro bevel if i understand the video correctly.

I se different pressure and angles. Inconsistent sharpening etc

Why did Takeda make their own hand held sharpener? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7iVKRmmTNY

 

I try to only judge results.

Well, there's always a talented unique. It's like in golf, the swing of Jim Furyk, weird, exceptional and efective, but not really worth imitating.

That's not the case of the video.

People should learn the traditional way and have a solid understanding of basic concepts before making up techniques.  The ones that learn starting with these, let's call them fringe techniques, are at a big disadvantage.  It's harder to unlearn and relearn.

 

It's too late for me to even make small changes.  I want to try sharpening sitting down, but I already have the muscle memory from sharpening standing up.
