The Day of Sorrow

I've done it.

I've done the unthinkable.

I've... killed my Staedlter 1v.  *sob*

All I wanted to do was sharpen it.  It needed sharpening.  It *deserved* sharpening.  So I went to Home Depot, got everything Kirbert says I need, and went at it.  Now... *sob*... Now, It will barely dent my rubber, let alone cut it.

What have I done?!  WHAT HAVE I DONE!?!

Please stay tuned for memorial information.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. Not all 1v's are created equal, and to have lost a good one is more than a carver should have to bear.

    I'll save a spot on the Slipstrop for your gouge.


  2. Thank you for your words, kind friend. My miniature and reversed are inconsolable (and quivering in fear lest they be subjected to the same fate).

    I don't even know if it can be saved... *sniff*
