If you ask any beginning carver, sharpening is probably the most difficult part of carving. Sharpening is also one of the most critical skills to master. If your tools aren't sharp, they just won't cut properly.

With the wide variety of tools available to the carver, sharpening is more than just one skill. This book does a good job of explaining how to sharpen a variety of carving tools. It also explains what products you'll need to sharpen your tools effectively. Only 58 pages full of photos and illustrations, yet it is thorough without being overly heavy on theory.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
