An earlier episode (link) of Handyman Blog featured the hand powered grinding wheel I use to sharpen my field chisels to a razor sharp edge.
So came the question: You have a chisel you can use to shave or scribe paper but can it cut wood? Is it a real “working edge?”
Well, I thought that was understood without comment, but in case it was not I am here to comment now: YES! It is a real working edge!
So today, for the edification of my audience, a video of several ordinary generic chisels as they cut curls from soft white pine crossgrain and even feather the factory edge of an undressed board.
Discerning viewers will understand the import of this exercise.
