I have a couple of Wood Joy shaves. I have a devil of a time holding the small blades to hone them The “Bladder Monkey’’ jumps on me about 0300. While trying to return to sleep an idea came in from nowhere.
In the morning I found one of those paper clamps. The black real stiff ones about 1.25’’ wide. I held it open with a Vice Grips, sanded the inside and applied 320 self adhesive sandpaper to both inside jaws.
Well it works. One just has to make sure it is in straight and this can be done by eyeballing it.

I feel your pain. Sharpening the smaller curved tools can be a real pain. Just in case you aren’t familiar with it on larger curved blades like a draw knife in walks the Galbert Drawsharp Jameel offers a home run in a box there.
