Life in a Tiny House called Fy Nyth – Knife Sharpening

Life in a Tiny House called Fy Nyth - Knife Sharpening
Just some more of the regular maintenance chores here in my tiny house. How I keep my kitchen knives sharp and useful! My favorite knives – or (They offer several different sets depending on what knives you like to use). And the handy sharpener I like –


If you are new to my channel and Fy Nyth in general, welcome and congratulations on joining the Fy Nyth Flock! I’m Ariel. I live off grid (as in no physical connection to public utilities) in a tiny house on wheels in the mountains of western Wyoming. I’ve been living this lifestyle for more than three years now and love it! What will you find if you follow my channel and watch my videos?

Real life here. I try to show the good and the bad. The ups and the downs. What works, and what doesn’t. The parts I love (most of it!), and the things that suck. Not just the showroom version of a tiny house, but everyday life in a tiny house. Not just the romantic idea of “homesteading” or off grid life, but the everyday details of this lifestyle. I split my own wood for heat, carry my water by hand, and attempt to grow as much of my own food as I can between the weather and wildlife here. I hope to help others learn from my mistakes and make life just a little easier for anyone else interested in pursuing a similar lifestyle.

I live in a somewhat harsh and cold climate, but enjoy the stunning sceanery and wildlife that I am surrounded by on a daily basis. You’ll also see videos of of the nature and wildlife around my home. If you are interested in my photography or purchasing a photo, I’d love if you follow that over at or!

For a bit of my background, as a child, I was fortunate enough to be able to spend much of my free time exploring and playing in the woods. Little has changed now that I’m older I suppose. I moved to a place with a bigger woods and still enjoy spending my time outside gardening, hiking, exploring, and photographing the natural world around me. As the eldest of seven children who grew up in a homeschooling family, I had the opportunity, not always appreciated at the time, to learn to do quite a bit of work. I’ve enjoyed a wide range of jobs, everything from greenhouses and flower arranging to wilderness therapy with teens, to milking cows. Mostly, I enjoy doing the kinds of things that I think provide a real service or value to others. Some of my other hobbies include backpacking, hosting people, cooking, preserving food, anything to do with nutrition, reading, journalling, and sitting around a fire and talking to my close friends.

  1. @Ariel: Really enjoyed your video. Very informative tutorial on kitchen knife sharpening. I have been looking for a good knife sharpener for a long while & have yet to find a good one! I have even asked other YouTuber chefs what they use but no one ever answers nor demonstrates. My dad use to sharpen his out in garage on a wheel. I dont have that set-up and a wet stone is not only a pain but very time consuming when you have several knives to do. I'll check this sharpener out. It sounds good to me and simple. Thank you for sharing.

  2. My daughter sold CutCo knives when she was just out of high school. But you have reminded me that I should sharpen them more often than I do. Thanks Ariel!

  3. I use a little hand held one that looks like a set of brass knuckles and it does a great job. Very useful for my pocket knife too.

  4. Hi Ariel Great video. I saw one of those sharpeners years ago. It was steel framed as you mentioned. I always wondered where they came from. Now that i think of it I saw it on a ranch in New Mexico or maybe Arizona . Any
