In case you missed our FREE Shop Talk about Sharpening, here’s a little post to help get you started.
You Will Need:
1 Dull Unhappy Chisel
1 Diamond Stone
1 Bottle of Windex
Choose the side of your diamond stone with the grittiest grit or the lowest number. Spray this side liberally with windex.
Angle the chisel so that the tip and the heel make contact with the stone.
Trace out either figure 8’s or a circle with your chisel against the stone until the microblade looks shiny. Rewet with windex if necessary.
Flip chisel over and hold chisel flat against the stone. Slide the chisel back and forth. Repeat motion until the back of the chisel has no burr.
If your diamond stone has multiple grits, continue process until you reach the finest grit or the highest number.
Using either a buffing wheel or a leather belt, polish your newly sharpened chisel.
