Gave mine to my neighbor and fishin' buddy who is a wood carver to sharpen. He has hones of all shapes for his carving chisels and fixed them right up--even the curved ones. Just a thought for folks who don't know a barber but do know a wood carver. DAN
PS -- one of his specialties is carving and painting up fish. How he gets bluegill fins carved down to 1/32" thick is beyond me.
