You couldn't leave a like most likely because you were not logged in

Dunno, I'm logged in, got the like button, but it doesn't take.

When you think about it...those striations are on the flat side, as well as the bevel side. By eliminating them as much as possible...it becomes less blunt at the cutting edge and allows it to pierce and separate the wood more easily. I couldn't believe how much easier it was. Try it for yourself...It Is Worth the Effort!

I've got the "like" button, or "thumbs up" button now. The automatic withdrawal must have come out.

a very brief article that "should" raise a few eyebrows by Derek Cohen. There can be no question regarding the "edge" put on these chisels. The point is more about the steel being used and how it performed. A very important consideration that many new to sharpening fail to recognize. At the very least, a good starting point for those looking to do their due diligence.

Gary has done a superb job of putting an edge on his chisel. However, is the time spent achieving such an edge worth it? Absolutely! IF the chisel is going to be used for pairing and finish work. If the chisel is to be used for roughing work, perhaps not so much. Type of work, types of wood used, time and finances all come into play when deciding what path to take when it comes to sharpening and tool choices. For anyone looking to invest in what might be thought of as a decent set of chisels, I'd suggest that a not so decent set also be purchased. Use em for your beaters, roughing work, etc... anything that you would hesitate to use a well tuned chisel on.
