Drawknives

Honing the back

  • Hold the drawknife securely in your hand or fix it with a clamp
  • Pre-sharpen the back with the DMT folding sharpener
  • Shiny areas indicate the even parts of the stone, while the darker areas have not yet had contact with the sharpening stone or folding sharpener (the front part of the blade, approx. 3 mm, is important here)
  • Move the combination stone (e.g. No. 711007) over the entire surface, first with the 1000 grit side and then with the 6000 grit side, until all scratches are removed

If you often sharpen the drawknife, you do not normally need to hone the back, or only with the 6000 grit stone.

Sharpening the bevel

  • Hold the drawknife securely in your hand or fix it with a clamp
  • Move the DMT folding sharpener over the bevel from the front or from the back (less risk of injury)
  • Moving the folding sharpener or stone slightly diagonally increases the contact area (no tilting)
  • Move the combination stone over the entire surface, first with the 1000 grit side and then with the 6000 grit side, until all scratches are removed
  • Finally, you can hone off the burr that has formed on the back while you were sharpening the bevel
