    Too soon to buy a new knife?

    I just bought a new yoshihiro yanagi-ba a couple weeks ago which I love. I also have a full role complete with takeda, sugimoto, masahiro, tojiro and even a shun that has taken years to compile.

    How do you sharpen a machete?

    I have a small whetstone I was trashing on it but it doesn't seem to be showing a lot of give. Non-sequitur here but I'd also appreciate some tips on how to keep food fresh for say a six day trip. I'm going camping by myself in a couple weeks and am just trying to get situated.
