Also please can I ask how you sharpen your curved tools? I usually use a honing guide so I'm having trouble with mine!

Sharpening a travisher is easy enough as long as the cutting angle is spot on
I use an old bat handle with wet and dry wrapped round it,,, roll it along the cutting edge, then the back edge
Go through the grades, your looking for even burrs along the edges.
Start at 600grit, and finish on 1500 or so

As with most things these days, you tube is your friend.
