Better Than StonesThese diamond hones, while expensive, allowed me to refurbish an older collection of lathe tools and carving chisels. The sharpeners are shaped perfectly to match the radiuses of gouges and some veining tools. They cut fast, without undue effort, and leave an edge which can be polished to perfection with my older washita stones and home-made strops. They will be on top of the tool tray for quick re-honing on the job. I carve nautical decorative items and cannot abide a dull or misshapen tool.
Wave Shaped Sharpeners are a Winner!I've waited years for a product like this to help me keep my gouges shaving sharp. I purchased both and I am very happy with their performance. I also use them as a doming tool to put a nicely radiused done on the end of violin tuning pegs. I just place a sheet of appropriate grit sandpaper on the concave back-side of the sharpener and rub the small end of the ebony violin peg back and forth while spinning it until a pleasing looking dome has been created.
