After the last Bench Talk, where I discussed letter carving, I was asked to talk about sharpening carving chisels. So, here it is. I discuss sharpening a double bevel, a gouge, and a V-tool. All my chisels are Pfeil Swiss Made Carving Chisels from Woodcraft, which you can find by using my affiliate link on the right side of the page. They are excellent carving chisels and made to a high standard.
In all honesty, sharpening carving chisels is not that difficult. I do believe it needs to be seen at least once to get an idea of how it should be done. I try to point out the reasons for why and how I sharpen the way I do. In the end it is just a piece of metal that you are trying to get as sharp as possible, and the quickest way you can. You will know if it is sharp or not when you put it to the wood.
