I think for the most part everyone here has given good answers and advice. I would also like to add. Learning to sharpen your hand tools will require almost as much skill and knowledge as using them. This will require you to invest some time and money into sharpening equipment too.

Just getting started your not really going to know just how important it is to sharpen and tune hand tools. There's also more than one right answer and a whole lot of not so right answers on the subject.

It's easy to dive in and really get frustrated with the results your not getting. The guy in the video probably isn't showing the lengthy process he went through to get that mirror finish on his tool. Hang in and look for answers, nobody nails it on the first try. Working with hand tools and power tools doing woodworking, is truly an life long lesson and journey.


Friends don't let friends use stamped metal tools sold at clothing stores.
