Review: Sharpening Workshop Held at the Oxford Conservation Consortium, Oxford, England

I taught the two day version of my sharpening workshop, titled “Making and Sharpening Knives: A Rational Approach”  at the Oxford Conservation Consortium September 7 & 8, 2010.  Arthur Green and Maria Kalligerou wrote a nice review in the Institute of Conservation Newsletter,  November 2010.  If you are not a member of ICON, I would highly recommend joining– one major perk of membership is that each year, members are entitled to 10 free photocopies (including shipping!) or pdf’s of conservation journal articles ( or chapters of books) from the Chantery Library, which is perhaps the best book and paper conservation library in the UK. And there are two issues of their journal, newletters, workshops, etc….

The review also contains some good, practical tips for sharpening. It begins at the bottom right hand corner of the first page:  Knife Sharpening IconNewsNOV10
