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.
