Wonderful Mark! I would have never thought...but how is it being held there to paddle, when it won't fit the vise? BTW, they make one of the best axes in the world!

I should have posted this a month ago, but alas. And there is some seriousness in it, since I did use the WEPS stones to sharpen my Wetterlings.

It is indeed a great axe, Leo. Here a Gransfors Bruks is regarded as an even better finished axe, but the Wetterlings fits my hands much better. And the WEPS diamond stones took care of the finish... :) .

Great to hear that you are developing an axe extension, Clay! Will you please make sure that it does low angles as well and that it can sharpen pencils? :mrgreen:

I just received my WEPS and am going through the learning process and trying to sharpen everything in sight. Just for kicks, I pulled out an old SOG Tomahawk to see if I could sharpen it on the WEPS. Its definitely no Wetterlings or Gransfors and I have not been too pleased with it so I figured I could do no harm. Set at 30 on each side at its height gives it about a 17 degree angle. So yes, you can sharpen an axe if its a cheapie like the SOG. It is much sharper than before when it honestly was like a dull butterknife and at least works like an axe.

So what am I missing? How do you attach an axe that thick? Color me confused....
