How much pressure to use on a whetstone?

dcole | Nov 29, 201011:08 AM

I've been using one for a while and have gotten great results from them, but I think I might be putting too much pressure on the knife when I sharpen them - I am not putting a lot, but I am also not babying it. So to the people on here who are pretty knowledgeable, how much pressure do you guys put on the knife against the stone? Just enough to create a grind against the stone or a little more?
