Met up with woodworker Jonas and his Tormek in Grรฆsted, Denmark today! ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช
Jonas makes handcarved wooden spoons, butter knives, cutting boards etcetera for both Michelin-starred restaurants and private homes. We had a great time at his place, chatting about tools, woodwork and sharpening. It's always a pleasure meeting people who's enthusiasm really rubs off!

Does honing affect the result? YES, it does!
When sharpening, a burr develops on the upper side of the edge. This burr must be honed of, otherwise it will break off as soon as you start using the tool, leaving you with a blunt and torn edge. Honing on the Tormek gives your tool a real sharp and durable edge and removes the marks left by the grinding wheel, which makes the surface finer.
Honing is normally done freehand, but for some tools you can also use the jig with the Universal Support.
What are your experiences on honing?

๐Ÿ™๐ŸปWatching my dirty Tormek stone go back to flat is a very zen type of thing to do after the week Iโ€™ve had might as well say month Iโ€™ve had.... This is the stone flattening jig I forget itโ€™s jig name but it reminds me of a record player. 
This week I ran my First Ladies class (which was yesterday) and omg someone asked me about the difference between figure and grain direction and holey moley before I knew what I was saying I was discussing medullary rays and cats fur and how a blade runs over the straws and then it was a slippery slope to how a hand plane works !!๐Ÿ˜ฟso the thing Iโ€™ve learnt from that exercise is that not going into too much detail is the way to go. Especially on lesson number 1. I donโ€™t know whoโ€™s doing more learning here me or them! Anyway they appeared to love and yes we drank tea and ate scones and even got the can of cream spray out! ๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿ‘ฏBut it was a big thing for me and now I just want to do this ๐Ÿ˜Š

1. As an instructor for Tormek, what's your best โ€œTormek tipโ€?
"To use the coarse side of the Stone Grader more often. If you have dull tools that need to be sharpened, you'll save a lot of time if you refresh your stone before you start sharpening." ๐Ÿ”ช
2. Born in Belgium ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช and raised in Sweden๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช, what do you choose; a Belgian Gillet sports car or a Swedish Volvo family car?
"Since I'm a dad to a toddler, I guess I need to go with the Volvo... ๐Ÿš— but I'll probably be getting a Gillet for my midlife crisis." ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ’จ
3. Which celebrity do you get mistaken for?
"The Swedish sprinter Johan Wissman! Wissman was even my nickname for quite some time."๐Ÿƒ
4. What is the top thing on your bucket list?
"To climb a mountain! Mount Everest feels slightly hardcore, but I believe I could manage to climb Kilimanjaro." ๐Ÿ”
5. If you were an emoji, which one would it be?
A Tormek sharpened gouge, ready to get to work! ๐Ÿ‘
