    knife damage

    Maybee however perhaps the edge is sharpened to thin. Once i put a very thin razor edge on a opinel, after batoning a small stick it was gone! Then again, there is a lot of bad steel out there and the edge rolling as opposed to chipping probably hints that it is too soft.

    Which Axe Sharpening Tools?

    that's quite a hard target, but it is possible (good for mini axes) I normally go a bit below that though. I use a foldable diamond file/stone (£2.50 ebay, and found a small one free in a nail cutting set) and to finish a home-made stone from a river
