Laughing aside sharp pruners are less damaging to what they are cutting - cut an apple with a blunt knife & it goes brown in half the time it takes if an apple is cut with a sharp knife.

Agreed. You definitely need sharp tools when budding, grafting, pruning or taking cuttings. Everything heals quickly and looks cleaner. Here's two more. My Hedge shears and loppers

Well I've seen it all now! :lol:

Good selection ; how are you going to to the hair cutting scissors(plus those edges look like they are convexed) & clipper blades ?
The knife with a curved blade looks like a mushroom knife.
The Japanese knife looks like a Sayaira Kogatana which is a woodworking knife is it double or single beveled?
Certainly an interesting selection I imagine you have your own mushroom knife.

The clipper blades were from some kind of beard trimmer. I just worked them as you would on a wet stone. The scissors came out very nice. I figured out a way to do convex edges that works for me. That cool mushroom knife is actually an old carpet cutting knife that was made by Klein tools I found out. I have no idea about the small knife. Its a single bevel made in Japan. That came out really clean. I need a better camera and for people to send in more of those.

Well done !! I do use an Edge Pro pro for scissors but it is a slow process to convex on a fixed angle machine I have done some globals that way I thinned them to the edge at 10Ëš then with the finishing stone I put a micro bevel of 15Ëš then one at 14-13-12-11 then stropped the steps out last time I did these Globals; this time I did them on Shapton bench stones covexing to the edge finishing at 16000 grit then a light strop they were quicker to do this way and sharper (since the finest stone I have for the EP is 1200grit although I do have some tapes but they fizzle out at 6000 grit.)
My attitude is to do whatever is needed to achieve a result I like guided systems for smaller knives since they are hard to hold on bench stones and I also do the cheaper chefs knives currently on the EP although I should get my WE any day now.
I like having a choice of how I am to sharpen a knife. If someone handed me a custom folder or sheath knife the WE will be the choice to use since both with the EP or bench stones it is possible to put the odd scratch where it is not meant to be .
