    I’ve seen a million different ways to sharpen tools, but now I’ve seen the way I’ll be sharpening my tools from now on. Everet has a unique spin on sharpening, one that preserves the wire edge and makes it usable. Very informative, right down to the best position for your stone, among other things. (I would never have thought of using a piece of cardboard for a strop). He covers every carving tool in the shop. A great wealth of information on this disc.
