What are Sharpening Tools?
Sharpening tools are devices which help to restore the sharpness of a blade's edge. This is typically done by removing very small amounts of metal from the surface of the blade and re-aligning it in a way that creates an even, fine edge. Common sharpening tools include whetstones, diamond stones, honing rods, manual pull-through sharpeners, and electric sharpeners. Depending on your needs and preferences, each tool offers different benefits and features.
