Sharpening on the go
small tin of what you need.
I like to bring this small tin when I leave the workshop with sharp tools.
More precise when I bring carving tools and a knifes on the go.
It just joined me for a travel in Turkey and will again this summer.
Yeps nothing fancy, just a a small mint tin.
Here next to a Turkish pocket knife.
Now open, you will be surprised how much a small tin can hold.
What you see here are a flat and a round leather strap for honing.
Finger protector (in lid), wax, honing compound, cloth, sharpening stone (two sided).
Small files, iron saw piece, sharpening stone black and white one side round.
Scrapers flat and round, sandpaper grid 120-2500, drill piece for making a bur on scrapers, small knifes.
All of it.
With this kit you can sharpen most tools and make a finish on small projects.
It’s just what you need for a spoon carving set.
Hope it can inspire, or at least keep some tools sharp.
