This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in tool care.

Here is a video on how to sharpen a drawknife.

From the video description:
"How to sharpen a draw knife. the drawknife is a very old tool that is a ton of fun to play with. the draw knife is easier to sharpen then it looks it just takes a bit of time understanding. just like any other sharp tool where two faces of metal meet. just grind down one face to meet the other."

Requirements to complete:
- must be sharpened with a whetstone (or more than one)
- hone
- test before and after with cutting paper

To get certified for this BB, post three pics:

 - closeup of pic of the dull edge OR pic of the dull  drawknife raggedly cutting through a piece of paper
 - action pic of sharpening
 - pic of the sharp drawknife having cut halfway through a piece of paper
