Knife-Skills Class

Another question: Can anyone recommend a knife-skills class? I know there are many in the Bay Area, but I'd particularly like to find one that teaches how to sharpen knives with a whetstone.

      You do not have to pay for a class... just buy some waterstones of varying grit and start sharpening. You can learn easily. It is not a hard task. Have fun!
