Re: Criteria for deciding when to sharpen

Ron Harper
Please believe tgat this is not a troll or in any way a value judgement. You said " it has ben a week or two since I planed something". If I were describing my work , it would be "it was an hour since I last planed something". I do believe that does color your attitudes about honing My honing method is so quick that I hone often and with chisels, especially, I strop very often. I am pretty much " old order neanderthal" , so my planes and chisels must be very sharp. Before I sold my power tools, I did not hone my hand tools as much as I do now
