Not many guys are able to produce an edge capable of passing the HHT. Especially freehand on a knife.
The video shows an investment in high end abrasives, very thin edge geometry, and very good technique.
It's definitely a fun achievement, but in my experience Ed's right. That type of edge has a tough time slicing rope or passing the three finger test. It will easily push cut rope, but not for long.
Still, nicely done.
