Sharpen first. Then, don’t forget that draw knives can be used bevel up or down depending in the cut(s) required. Angled blades cut a bit better, so don’t forget that. Makes for slicing motion. Make sure that grain direction is in your favor. Trying to cut on rising grain is a no-no. Leads to tear out.
Did I say SHARPEN?
