Sharpening methods #1: What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why?

06-03-2011 01:48 PM by mafe | 157 comments »

What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why? After we had a few talks on Berthas ‘what is your favorite hand plane’ blog I decided we needed to go to next step. So please let us hear your thoughts show us pictures videos why you like your blade or sharpening method and proofs if they exist why it should be better than other.

Done: Simple Headboard Build

1/1/11 Happy New Year everyone! Not only is this another year for but I, personally, am about to hit my fourth year here (thanks for the reminder, Gary). Someone (Jim) has suggested that it would be great to hear from the members who have been here from the beginnings (or close to it). What a great idea. So, to all you “old-timers”, share your thoughts on and how you’ve seen it grow over the years.
