Tool and Knife Sharpening


HOME (DIY) & GARDENING, NATURE & ANIMALS -
Winter/Spring 2024

In this demo-style class, Louis will offer basic instruction in the principles and techniques sharpening of various household tools such as kitchen knives, scissors, and garden implements. Bring in one or two items that warrant sharpening and/or adjusting and learn which sharpening tools of the trade would be best for each implement. Instructor sharpening up to two-items is included in the fee.

Honing stones, files, strops, sharpening jigs and other devices commonly used in sharpening will be available for either demo and some hands-on practice depending on your level of comfort, desire and safety.

This class will meet inside CVU.

Louis Cox

For the past several years, I have done knife, scissor, and tool sharpening as part of the Sustainable Charlotte Repair Cafe, using knowledge and skills that I have acquired over many years as a wood carver, do-it-yourself home repairman, and gardener. In 2020 I was part of a workshop sponsored by Sustainable about sharpening and using grass scythes. In 2021 I led a one-afternoon workshop sponsored by Sustainable Charlotte on the techniques and principles of tool sharpening. I have picked up additional knowledge about sharpening from YouTube videos and courses on CDs and now I am passing them along to you at Access!
