I ran across these videos last night on YouTube. So often when the subject of sharpening comes up, the discussion focuses on assumptions and biases, and often becomes esoteric or abstract pretty quickly. Having said that, I’m guilty also. I do try to see it more from a global perspective, recognizing that edge tools aren’t used only by flat and square furniture makers. My own interests include carving, chair making, and instrument building.

Here’s links to Ken Parker’s somewhat brief introduction to plane blade preparation and sharpening. I’m not advocating any of it, but I am interested in the efficiency and practicality.
