.......The pull stroke makes it much easier to keep the blade straight..........
I'd be careful of stating that as fact. It's absolutely a matter of opinion. Not one I share, as it happens.
....... Despite what various WW Youtube "gurus" say, saw-sharpening is a skilled business to get right; and looks to be bluddy tedious.......
Tedious? Maybe, but it's only 4 or 5 minutes. Skilled? Not highly. It's pretty simple, and hard to get wrong unless your eyesight is poor. Besides, woodwork is supposed to be skilled. Learning skills is what it is all about. This is just another one of the many skills or techniques involved.
