Learn to sharpen traditional tools.
Learn to sharpen hand tools such as planes, chisels, axes, and knives, or other tools with cutting edges such as lawn mower blades or shovels. In this class, general hand sharpening techniques and tools will be reviewed and demonstrated, with plenty of time for students to then apply these techniques as they gain practical sharpening skills. Students will leave with an understanding of edge shaping vs honing, types of cutting edges, how to create sharp edges and different sharpening techniques.
