Always hold the axe with a firm grip while sharpening.
Adding water to the sharpening process will make the work much easier and prevent the stone from getting filled with residue.
To avoid cutting injuries, place your fingers in the groove of the stone and make sure that no other part of your hand protrudes the sharpening surface. We recommend using protective gloves when sharpening your axe.
If cutting edge of your axe is damaged or worn, start by using the coarse side of the stone.
Work your way across the whole convex sharpening bevel using small circular motions.
Sharpen both sides of the blade equally, alternating between sides during the process. Lastly, use the fine side of the stone and repeat procedure. Sharpening an axe requires both skill and time, so be patient.
Good luck and stay sharp!
