Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm thinking of trying my hand at woodcarving, and I would begin with whittling. I think I know what knife I plan to buy, but I have no idea what I need for a sharpening kit. I'd like something relatively inexpensive, in case this hobby doesn't stick with me, but I want something that will keep the (small) blade to a reasonable level of sharpness.
Do I need just a whetsone and strop, do I need one of those systems where you clamp the knife so the sharpening stone hits at just the right angle, and any specific recommendations on brands etc?
