Step 17: Ceramic Sharpening Stone

Picture of Ceramic Sharpening Stone
The rough bottom of a ceramic vessel makes a good sharpening stone. Here I'm sharpening a pair of scissors. A sharp pair of scissors makes a nice sound. Also it cuts well. Look carefully at how the bevels go together before you sharpen scissors the first time. If you grind on the wrong thing you'll make your scissors worse rather than better.
