Sharpening stones are an age-old approach to tool maintenance. Tool sharpening, especially with a Japanese water stone, can be a delight, creating a bond between craftsman and tool, allowing for your best work, be it carving or turning, to emerge. Sharpening stones and water stones create a rhythm as the craftsman sharpens a tool edge. To carve and create intricately, it is critical that your tools are sharp and fine. Sharpening tools is an elegant way to reach back to the past, when all woodcraft was handmade, and when quality mattered. The passionate woodworker keeps his sharpening stones near at hand, because in woodworking, it is the edge that matters. Woodcraft helps you keep that edge with a wide selection of sharpening stones, sharpening tools, and sharpening stones.
