This is my sharpening bible. Basically everything you need to know about sharpening in one book. With a whole bunch of other interesting stuff – like why wood cuts the way it does and the metallurgy of the steels we use in our tools.
The first book reviewed is one I would consider absolutely essential for any hand tool woodworker. The philosophy, tools and knowledge gained from following this build is invaluable.
The first episode gives some background into why I decided to start the podcast. It’s a pretty quick listen but there’s no reason not to skip it and jump into episode one. If you do listen you’ll find out a bit about me, why I’m doing the podcast and how I intend rating the books
