STAY SHARP!

-

Like any edge tool, a spokeshave behaves best and is most enjoyable to use when the blade is razor sharp. The problem is the blades are small or narrow, so they won’t fit in most honing guides. However, with a little ingenuity, some scrap material, and a few pieces of hardware, you can make these helpers to keep your blades on the cutting edge.
