OCC Stubby V-Tool 1/2"

All OCC gouges come with a pre-sharpened edge. To keep this V-Tool in razor sharp condition, strop on a regular basis. We recommend polishing compound and a strop. Hold on the edge of the V at a 15° bevel which is the same as the V-Tool has been sharpened at. Strop one side of the V, then sharpen the other edge of the V. Don't try to sharpen the outside corner separately. This is what will mess up your V-Tool.
