Strop and Compound

This is all you will need to keep a keen edge on any of our tools.

We have found that this 600 grit silicon carbide in an oil base works great on all our tools. Our tools are quite hard and the carbide has proven to be more aggressive than most compounds. A couple passes and you're ready to carve whether it is our heftiest tools or our smallest, you will see results fast

 Strop & Compound  $19.95

sold individually Strop $14.95/ compound $9.95

"The Joy of Sharpening"

Full of helpful hints and technical knowledge.


Sharpening Service

We are always here to help you maintain our tools

By popular demand, we are offering a sharpening service. We will always help you learn proper techniques for your own edge maintenance, but we understand that sometimes you may want a hand. With any of our tools you should only need to strop the blades unless you damage the edge.  Our tools can be sent in for a minimal handling and return shipping fee. For all your other tools see our prices below and we do offer quantity discounts.  Turn around time is generally one week.

Buffing Wheels

We are always asked what buffing wheels we use and recommend.  We have decide to offer these to you for your own needs






This first one is a cotton wheel that is spiral sewn, so it is a bit firmer than the traditional cotton wheels available.  The advantage is that it allows the wheel to change shape easily to match the inside and outside diameter of various gouges, v-tools and will then reshape to a flat for knives and straight edges.  We often double up for the added width, but that is our personal preference.  

6" Diameter,1/2" hole size,1/2" face

$12.95 each

This second choice is a harder wheel that also has some give for matching outside diameters, but is my favorite for knives.  It works great for straight edges and various blade shapes.  The wheel holds the compound well and will last for a very long time. 

6" Diameter, 1/2" Hole size, 1" face

$38.00 each

Lea 309

This is the compound that we use and have not found anything to compare to it for effectiveness.  It is very fast cutting to remove scratches and provides a  mirror finish.
