...I'll see people mention things like CBN wheels putting a great finished edge on a turning tool.

Without trying to wake warren up, I don't use a pole lathe, but do hone all turning tools. If someone never works with a honed skew, they're missing out.

And I'm no good at turning, but can still appreciate it. I haven't had any significant damage to the honed edges of skews, but they're double bevel and I round the tip a little bit with the stones to make sure the fine stone finish gets to the edge. .....so I guess they're two horned unicorns.
