my uncle in holland the woodcarver!! wooden shoes

well i went to get my mail today , and my uncle ( oma geert) sent me some tools from holland so that i can now hollow out the wooden shoe i made earlier, i really didnt know how to sharpen these, thinking maybe he should do a video on how to sharpen these, well , i took my tools home, and bingo, there is a video of how to sharpen these tools, to my great surprise, i will do a video on this tonight , to show you why these tools might be tough to sharpen, knives i am fine with gouges i can but i am not fast at it as some folks are, he did a great job and i will soon put a link on it so you folks can see it, when he came here to see his brother ( my dad) back in 1991 , i was carving santas and he wanted to learn so we carve a couple of santas, and he is still carving today, all kinds of things, esp the wooden shoes, the old fashion way his website is www.youtube.com/hobbygeert and you can see him making a wooden shoe, someday i will have to go visit him!
