....I only do the most convincing of old wives' tale creating!!

My slight of hand technique changes may not bring any gain, but they really get people to believe that there's one!!

(in this case, the method does significantly decrease sharpening frequency, and it's fast - 30 seconds for a refresh. The biggest gain from it, though, is in making really cheap chisels capable of heavy work or paring without damage, and in harder chisels, eliminating some of the seemingly random small chipping).
