Keeping tools sharp and in good condition is absolutely vital for all of the skills that are taught on DRST courses. This course focuses mainly on the correct sharpening of billhooks and axes, but also includes the making and replacement of tool handles using pole lathe or drawknife. If you have any tools needing TLC come along and bring them with you.
