Sharpening Stones

Proper sharpening of a cutting tool should always occur before the edge is badly worn or damaged and prior to the angle of the bevel becoming inadvertently changed.Sharpening with a poor quality stone (too hard or too soft) may severely damage a valuable tool.It is important to first restore the basic tool surface prior to
re-stoning.

The most prevalent problem in sharpening applications results from the selection of an incorrect stone shape.The following guides should prove useful:

  • Always use sharpening stones with flat surfaces for straight portions of tools,or for tools with convex edges,such as spoke shave blades
  • Use round edge sharpening stones for concave tool surfaces,such as round-nose lathe tools or routers
  • Use sharpening stones with wedge edges to reach deep into steep-angled cutters,such as wood block gouges.
