We are Hewn and Hone. Seller of sharpening supplies and other carving related items. Our mission is to bring you products custom made to our specifications, or hard to find items often only available to industry. Nic’s vision was to start a company focussed on sharpening woodworking tools. All at H&H sharpen tools on regular basis either as the maker, end user, or instructor. Being able to tap into this diverse wealth of knowledge means we are able to offer solutions to sharpening issues that are unique in the green wood working world
If it is true that a picture paints a thousand words the portrait gallery of us here at Hewn and Hone tells you all you need to know about our extraordinary and eclectic team. Front and centre we have Don Nalezyty, IT specialist and respected Kolroser. Don keeps Hewn and Hone on course, reining in the eccentric energies of the team. To the left we have Alex Yerks, renowned Kuksa carver and international green wood teacher. Alex’s visionary skills and style will be evident in all Hewn and Hone’s social media, films and photography. Finally to the right we have Nic Westermann, original founder of Hewn and Hone and respected tool maker. Nic’s one man war against dull, lifeless carving blades has resulted in this new and exciting collaboration that is Hewn and Hone.
And below centre, a recent addition to the team we have Adrian Lloyd, UK based full time craftsman, teacher and tool maker. Adrian’s Design based University education and 20 years as an educational professional help to ensure Hewn and Hone products are end user focused and can be used by makers at all levels. Adrian is also UK based, making it easy for Nic to bother him on a regular basis!’
