How to Achieve the Sharpest Cutting Edges with Traditional Techniques
Rudolf Dick
• A guide to sharpening tools using methods based on Japansese water stone grinding methods
• Cutting improvement tips for chisels, axes, drill bits, and more from experts and 250+ photos
• Make your tools work better and last longer
There is much discussion among artisans when it comes to improving the cutting behavior of tools quickly and
permanently, but the debate is settled here, where expert engineers and master craftsmen prove the benefits of
sharpening blades and tools usingmethods based on time-tested Japanese water stone grinding techniques. Learn
through detailed instructions how to get perfect edges on your chisels, planes, axes and hatchets, woodcarving and
woodturning tools, drill bits, and handsaws in a tool-conserving and—in the best sense of the word—sustainable
way, using stones, files, and specially designed machines. Manual sharpening has the added advantage that only
as much material as absolutely necessary is taken off the steel. Founded on a scientific understanding of steel
types and sharpening means and filled with valuable tips, this guide is a standard-setting volume and the ideal
companion on the path to acquiring sharper and better edges on all your hand tools.
