Question Help With Sharpening System

hello all

I am rather new in woodworking and mostly exited after completing my fifth project , when problems started to appear.Obvious to all of you ,unknown to me : MY TOOLS HAD TO BE SHARPENED !

So i did search the web for a cheap solution (i only have 3 pfeil handtools and a bunch of really cheap ones) and i found that i had to buy a griding stone, which i did.I have spent hours and hours on the stone with little results though , but it is getting rather frustrating to spent more hours on the stone than on the wood.

So i am here now spending days and days trying to find a cheap and reliable solution ( aka sharpening system ) to start carving again.Please note that i live in Greece so some ebay and amazon solutions have too much shipping costs for me to afford.

Any help pointing towards the right direction will be much appreciated.
Thank you all in advance

Look online at sandpaper and glass sharpening.
I use the system and have great results.
Mike Dunbar chairmaking school was where I first heard about it.

Learning more about tools everyday

Click this link, there are so many good ways to sharpen your carving tools it will make your head spin. If you are using stones to sharpen your carving tools you are wearing them out, once your tools are sharp all you need to do is hone them. It is good that you have a few Pfeil tools as the Swiss made tools are thicker than the American made tools. Pfeil are as good a tool as there is IMHO. If you have cheap tools they will not hold an edge very well and you will spend more time honeing than carving, not to mention they will be damaged easier. Oh Sorry, here is the link
