My wife is starting to do some chip carving. She will go along fine and then stops for a few weeks. I asked her why and she said that she stops until she can buy a new sharp knife hers keep going dull.
I checked the drawer in her bench and she has about 10 knives! I think it would be a LOT easier (and cheaper) to teach her to sharpen them but, it seems that she is not interested in learning because it is “too detail oriented.”
Our local hardware store has a Worksharp 2000 on closeout for about $50 but I am not sure if it will sharpen the carving knives. The videos make it look easy enough to use but it seems to always be on flat blades not knives.
Would the 2000 or the 3000 work better, I would like the 3000 for my late tools but for this price I could make adjustments.
