A well cared for tool will last many years. A protective sheath will keep your tool edges sharp and ready to use. If you prefer not to use a leather sheath then make your own with sturdy cardboard and tape. Avoid contact with dirt, stone or other metal and keep your tools dry. Our range of tool care items are below. You can also read more tool care tips from Wood Tools in the UK in our Resources section.
If you aren't confident sharpening tools yourself, Julian at Little Bear Sloyd offers a Sharpening Service specialising in Green WoodWorking Tools.
