Luckily Paul had the dullest American Scythe in recent history.
I tried the peening jig until I figured out it wasn't helping and that the edge was so blunt (or incorrectly sharpened in the past) that the stone wouldn't even touch the edge.

Shellac is all natural and non toxic. It is safe enough it is recommended for wooden children's toys, and cutting boards. It will leave a natural or 'organic' looking finish as it ages.
This exterior oil is made with 100% Pure Tung Oil, Pine Oil, and Zinc. Use it as a raised garden bed, deck, fencing, or pergola wood finish. Also works well on concrete, stone or any absorbent material for exterior finishing. Keep the natural look of your wood while protecting it from the elements with this oil treatment.
Outdoor Defense Oil is a great Non-Toxic and high-quality way to finish – or refinish – your outdoor projects. It’s made with 100% Pure Tung Oil, Pine Oil, and Zinc. We all know about Zinc in sunburn skincare products. The zinc helps to prevent mold and mildew while also offering UV protection. Use as an outdoor wood finish to protect the beautiful wood grain or on concrete, stone, and any absorbent material. This also works great as a cedar garden bed oil and it provides decking protection. Generally, 2 to 4 coats give moderate protection. More coats only if the wood will accept it. The Outdoor Defense Oil does not build up on the surface but absorbs deep into the wood pores. This leaves a natural texture to the wood surface. Will provide a matte finish. Do not apply directly under the hot sun, as the oil will polymerize very fast and leave a frosty, rubbery surface. It does not need to be thinned with a solvent . Ready to be used right from the bottle! Hang rags outside separately to dry before disposing of.
