    Why didn't you move the plane in a figure eight like the chisels? I like the rest of this although I already knew most. I like that you are teaching correct procedures!

    here where i live i can get a machine with stones for 80 bucks and if i need a different stone for the wheel its around 30 bucks so that is not that expensive and if you are skilled enough you can work with just sandpaper alone

    Really interesting and informative video. What really caught my eye is your biker/dominatrix tool belt/vest. Awesome!

    simple techniques are often the best. i invested in the above shown water stones and diamond plate as the samurai suggested. i sharpened a cheap chisel "deadly sharp" on my first attempt using these stones. i have been a woodworker for many years but stayed away from hand tools due to what seemed to be a complex task of sharpening…not anymore! thank you!

    This guy is informative and easy on the eyes. I am sure we'd find eachother agreeable. Magnificent tooling, Samurai. keep doing it because you bring a playful/serious demonstrations.

    pro tip – put the stones in a bus tub like dish with low sides (similar to the size and shape of a casserole dish) and leave a little water in it. it keeps the sharpening residue contained and the water is easy to reach. and clean up really is a breeze.

    Cool video braddah. It explains how to sharpen your tools in an efficient way as well as lists what is required without having to watch a half hour of video.
