It seems like there are common questions that are voiced by Knife Knovices, among them “What is Damascus“, “Can you tell me about blade shapes?”. TTAK’s own Knifemaker in Residence, Will Woods has touched on many of these with his “Ask a Knifemaker” posts (hyperlinked above).
Knifemaker Walter Sorrells has taken to a different format to answer these same questions. (here, here)He is a prolific videographer who takes to his YouTube Channel to answer these same questions with excellent visual aides or actual demonstration of techniques. I missed this one when it debuted last month. Like Will has done here, Walter sets out to explain what exactly is a tanto.
The two formats compliment each other well.
