pull through sharpening aids//Fast New Bevel

Consider the Lansky Quadsharp Multi-angle if you would to add or restore a new BEVEL  on an edge. //You will have a choice of : 17, 20, 25, or 30 degree bevels with this device.// It is FAST ! It is not a sharpener but it very quickly gets you past the task of putting on the bevel that you wish to have before you start the sharpening process.See More

whittlers,large grip.

If you have the hand for them, there are sunfish size, whittler pattern knives out there which are new made and carry the brand names Winchester and Kabar.// They can be a bit pricey however they walk, talk, and do the work...I made my walking stick from an apple tree lower limb which had been dead for a while; now THAT is a pretty good test of a knife's metal!Thank you...See More
