I stumbled upon this site when I was doing a little research for freehand sharpening techniques. The technique explained in the honing section is really quite good. There is one section that explains why honing jigs hurts the average woodworker by having to rely on technology instead of the simple hand held process. It does not rule out jigs altogether, it is meant to make the hand tool woodworker a little more self sufficient. There is a really good look into Vietnamese woodworking also. The top left hand corner of the page will direct you were you want to go.
