Sharpening a gouge

Sharpening my gouges is probably my least favorite part of carving and most likely because I am not practised enough to be confident of doing a great job. Fortunately I live close to my son (bidaweebushcraft) and he makes my knives and gouges. He makes the sharpening look so easy and does it in no time at all. While I can I intend to use and abuse him for my sharpening!

A plug for him – he does make knives and gouges to most specifications and does other knife work using damascus and exotic handle material too. As he is full-time employed it is a hobby for him and he is happy for commission work where time is not a constraint.

So this week I feature him doing another sharpening of one of my tools in a short video clip.

Enjoy.
