Knives and Stones
Mostly an assortment of old stuff I've enjoyed reprofiling/thinning and keeping hair whittling sharp.

Right now I have a cheap combo waterstone and a hard/fine Arkansas for finishing and which doubles as a steel. I have designed what is essentially a supersized Wicked Edge type contraption I intend to have machined up and built soon, just because I can. The purpose is to achieve very acute angles (right up to 0deg) and hold them close over long knife-edge lengths, and to have all around tighter (less sloppy) running gear that can accommodate abrasive mediums of any reasonable length.
