Sharpening vs Stropping the Right Sidewinder Spoon Knife

Even a seasoned woodcarver will have a challenge sharpening “spoon carving knives”!   The must be painstakingly sharpened by hand without the use of a power sharpener.  HOWEVER …because they knives are made from quality tool steel and properly hardened they will require only minimum sharpening over the years.  Unless of course they have been damaged.   Stropping them on a regular basis will keep them in good shape and is much easier.  If you choose to use a power strop, be careful not to round the edge.
