I hope this will be interesting.
This is just one part of the my tools.
They are custom made for me personally.
These knives are very sharp.
My techniques on sharpening a carving gouges is traditional.
I use stone - "белгия" in Bulgarian.
I have a few rocks with different grain size.
I use Arkansas stone and Cretan stone.
Before I use them , I always dunk them in water.
Never sharpening my tools on machine (as I said before , I am afraid of them :) ,
this overheated the blade and makes it soft.
