  1. What to do with Sprock?

    Hello gentlemen.

    Just picked this up on a recent trip to Bath - cost me 7.

    Questions are, how to hone? is it worth it?

    The blade has "Sprock" engraved on one side, and "ground in Hamburg" on the other..

    I've done my best with the photos and apologise if they aren't up to the mark.

    Any advice appreciated.

    These are some lessons that I have learned, and am still learning or reminding myself of from time to time. Some may disagree with some of these (in fact I anticipate it), but this is what I have found valuable for myself, so hopefully it helps someone or generates interesting discussion.
