WKS531: Blade Sharpening Workshop: Flat Blades and Chisels
Class Number 883-113996
Participants are encouraged to bring in their own dull blades for this class, otherwise, the instructor will bring extras.
We all have them – those pocket or kitchen knives that just don't cut it any more.
Come and learn how you can bring a new edge back to your knives as well as your shop chisels! In this workshop, you will learn the basics of sharpening single and double bevel blades such as plane blades, chisels, and knives. We will also cover types of sharpening methods such as guides, jigs and freehand, and discuss grits and quality of blade sharpness as well as oil stones, water stones, honing and polishing compounds, and knife steels.
You will learn, hands on, how to sharpen a chisel, plane blade, or knife using stones and the "scary sharp" method.
