Must be doing it wrong...

Chisels that shaved hair don't do so after unicorning. One is an Axminster Rider (I believe made by Narex), and the other one is a Veritas PM-V11 Butt chisel, both 1/2" wide. After unicorning at about 45 degrees both chisels had a sizeable burr on their back. Too agressive a compound?
