With simple care your stone working tools will last for much longer.
- Always use the full width of the tip. If you use the corners the tip will break.
- Always remove all mushrooming from the striking end.
- Always keep the tip sharp, as this will help it to last longer and will give you a cleaner cut.
- Keep the tool above freezing point. The striking heads of larger tools can crack if they are hit when below this temperature.
