Atoma diamond stones work well for me.

Then I like to use water stones and stropping to get a sharp edge.

Like bbasiaga states “Sharpening is hard, at least until you get the trick of it.”

For me that meant using a sharpening jig:

Me too. I use the LV jig, and I also have a cheapie jig that works pretty well still. I just got a Japanese style chisel that is tapered in every direction and I can’t get it to sit well in any of the jigs….I’m going to have to figure out how to hand sharpen it. :o
