It’s no secret that to do fine work we need sharp tools. So the next few episodes are going to be a series on sharpening all of the different tools commonly found in the hand tool shop.
I have three requirements for a good sharpening system:
- It needs to be simple
- It needs to be fast
- It needs to be repeatable
While my chosen method of sharpening isn’t for everyone, it works for me and meets these three requirements perfectly. In this first episode of the sharpening series, I cover the straight edged tools like the square and skewed chisels and plane irons.
