SHARPENING BY HAND




Sharpening is one of the most important woodworking skills. Sharp tools are safer than dull ones, as they behave predictably and require much less effort. Getting your tools sharp isn’t difficult, and you don’t need much equipment – what you need is an efficient, repeatable method that works well for the tools you use and the way you work. From the vast array of choices available, we’ve put together a selection of tested, dependable sharpening media and equipment. We’ve also put a lot of effort into explaining them clearly and accurately to help you choose the combination that’s best for you. A key to success in the workshop, a good sharpening regimen ensures your tools are always performing at their best.
