the interesting turn got less interesting...

...as I move down the length of the apple stick, the heart is more prominent in it and it's softer.

The 32 degree bevels holding up is nice. Getting closer to the number of strikes to chop off an inch of wood in tenth inch slices as I see with the unicorn edge was also nice.

And then I followed those two by unicorning the ashley iles chisel and it took 40 strikes. I'll do this test right (with hard maple - finally may have a way to burn through some of it) when the V11 chisel arrives.

Perhaps all 1" chisels, and each getting an opportunity to work 28 and 32 degree flat bevels, as well as unicorning.
