knife and axe sharpening

I have been intending to update our guide to sharpening knives and axes (both at camp and at home) and it turned into something of an epic – over 5,300 words on sharpening, aftercare and even how to assess how sharp the blade is.

This is intended as a basic guide covering a number of methods, NOT as an in-depth examination of how to get the sharpest edge on a knife, axe or other cutting tool. They are techniques that are easy to pick up and can be done with the minimum of equipment if necessary.

The full text, images and even links on where to source equipment can be found on the Original Outdoors main website:
