Sharpening Implements

Sharpen your axes, knives and saws to keep them functioning at their best. Diamond stones, whetstones, strops, hones, steels - we've got your sharpening needs covered.

About Sharpening Implements

Any quality tool will need sharpening eventually. Having good sharpening implements provides the most efficient means of re-establishing and maintaining effective axe, saw and knife edges. Files are used to sharpen saws, and to grind axe and knife bevel faces re-establishing and correcting edge geometries. Saw files are triangular, and must always extend past the cutting teeth of the saw to allow for even wear of the file. Sharpening stones and diamond files are used to refine and maintain keen cutting edges on axes and knives, once general shaping has been completed, while strops and hones take a sharp edge to a razor edge, adding the finishing refining touches of the sharpening process.
