Sharpening & Tool Care

  • Blade Sharpening

  • Triangular Files

  • Leather Cases

  • Plane Sock

Even the best tools are of little use with a dull cutting edge. While experts often debate over the best sharpening practices and equipment, we recommend a simple, reliable method that produces a razor edge in minutes.

We prefer manual sharpening on waterstones because it’s simple, fast, safe, reliable, and with the right stones, it yields a sharpness quality unmatched by any other method we’ve tried.

The items in this section will help you keep your blades perfectly honed, bronze polished, iron rust-free, and your tools protected. With proper care, Lie-Nielsen tools will serve you for a lifetime.
