Travishers Part 3, Sharpening

One of the most rewarding parts of making travishers is taking them out for a test run and seeing what they can do. Here is a shaving off of some angled endgrain.






It's especially rewarding, having processed the steel from a soft, malleable blank to a razor sharp edge. Here is a video that shows the process that I use to get that edge. I hope that it helps. If there is any part of it that needs more info, please let me know.

I really appreciate the highly instructional videos you are currently providing. As I wait patiently for my travisher, I'm learning from the man who's making it. This is not only unique but a welcome surprise. I wish more boutique makers supplied this kind of personal approach. Thanks!

Carl,
thanks for the comment. The travisher is easily misunderstood, I hope that the videos help make it more accessible,
cheers,
Pete
