Basic Tool Sharpening


If you use chisels or other sharp hand tools, we highly recommend that you learn to sharpen your own tools. Sharp tools are much safer and supply an important level of precision to your work. Start by preparing, sharpening and honing a 1" chisel and a card scraper, then move on to plane irons, carving tools, and more.
