Bladed tool maintenance involves using the whetstone to keep a hunting knife or hatchet in optimal condition. It will not be a indefinite solution and at some point a hand-made alternative will be needed. This mechanic includes a Sharpening skill which is visible in the actions interface for bladed tools.
As of version 0.393, the Sharpening skill, which is only visible when maintaining a bladed tool and not in the player's journal, starts at 30 points for the player. The skill point increases by 1 for each time the blade is sharpened. Skill progression bonus are detailed below:
|Sharpening Skill||Tool Condition Improvement||Time to Sharpen||Chance of Success|
