  1. A Sharpening Handbook
£53.82 £49.93

We all need sharp tools. With sharp tools woodworking is a pleasurable experience. At times sharpening can feel like a chore. With a little knowledge and experience sharpening can become as satisfying as working with sharp tools.

There are many books on the subject of sharpening; as Richard D. Wile states, "sharpening has evolved." This book offers advice and insights, whether you are new to the craft or are looking to get an even better edge on your tools, with advice on guides, both new and traditional media and techniques.

Techniques cover the primary hand tools in most woodworkers’ shops – plane irons, chisels, carving tools and scrapers. His detailed descriptions of the newer sharpening media will enable the beginning sharpener to acquire an effective selection at minimum expense, while defining the eventual requirements for advanced sharpening.
