A subject close to my heart is edge tool maintenance and I hope more people will learn about taking care of their edge tools. When maintaining your knife and axe you build a nice bond between yourself and the tool. It's a nice feeling when your tool becomes an extension of your hand, and the hand an extension of your knowledge. To get this connection you need to spend lots of time together with your tool of choice. To enable this time spent you need to maintain your tool for it to last. With maintenance I mean; sharpening, cleaning and oiling. Just like the Musician an his instrument; you get better with your tool the more time you spend practicing. And if maintained correctly; the tool will produce better results. Another nice thing about taking care of your tools is the pleasant effects on the environment when enabling a long term ownership of the tool.
Inside the latest issue of Vapentidningen, No.4 - 2018, you can read my latest mag article on edge tool maintenance, focusing on sharpening your knife using a bench stone. I hope you'll find the article interesting and useful. Please don't hesitate contacting us if you have any questions regarding edge tools or their maintenance.
