About the event
"A sharp tool is a joy. A dull tool is drudgery." - Chris Knapp
If there's one tool we use above all others in our workshops, it's the knife. If you only had two tools to take into the woods, you may select a knife and an axe. Knives and axes are generally made of metal, which can be sharpened using a hard stone or factory-made sharpening-block.
Learn how to sharpen knives, axes, pruners, scissors, and other blade tools. Bring your own dull tools that need to be touched up, or come and practice sharpening some of our tools. We'll cover the basic theory behind sharpening edge tools, and practice using a variety of sharpening stones.
$15 includes all required tools and materials. 25% of all proceeds benefit the Co-op. Scholarships available. Knives available to purchase for $15 and up.
