View Full Version : My New Sharpening Station WIP

08-06-2013, 01:34 PM
I decided to build whole new Sharpening station :D

Been inspired in Japan by shigefusa and sword-polishers.

I now try to build my own Polishing sharpening Station where i can have water everywhere :P


Base for Togibune is ready, now need to make water sink and drain. Instead of traditional cedar wood i used some water-resistant plate

That will be a large station. Will you sit or stand when using it?

Here is example of one station. I will however make small changes :D

Very cool Maxim. Something tell me that that will never be a popular way of sharpening in the US. I'd like to see some pics of you in action

Thanks for sharing Maxim. You look just like you're avatar. HA

Love the sharpening station, but your legs and feet look cramped. Improper ergonomics will do destroy the human body quick. Perhaps if you raise your stone stand a bit, that will allow you to sit more upright, might be able to move your feet more parallel and along-side your stones, as opposed to the current oblique and behind stone foot position. I still have a lot to learn about sharpening, but being in the computer industry for over 20 years, I know a lot about ergonomics. Any hoo, thanks for the video!

Hehe nehh i sit just fine :D
If i raise a stones then i will get hurt back because my hands and shoulders will go up. I used like that before :)
That one is so i have it as comfortable as possible. I like to sharpen with a lot of pressure so laying down on the stone is most efficient for me

I have to go to work, but is it weird that I "could" watch a 30 minute video of sharpening with no dialogue?

08-15-2013, 08:42 AM
Lol there is nice music :P

I may do one time Morning Live stream at my sharpening station where i install handles sharpening polishing etc
