Use this technique and jig to put a razor-sharp edge on your chisels, plane irons, jointer knives, and lathe chisels.

The problem with sharpening disposable blades is that they are keyed and can't be adjusted to compensate for material lost in the sharpening process. The most difficult part of sharpening my blades (all of which were knicked and very dull) was flattening the back side.
I've sharpened 3 sets for the jointer and going to do 2-3 sets for the 13 inch planer after I finnish with the girls door.
There was some because my honing wasn't perfect but I found that the blade bevel is wide enough to do a pretty fair job, far better than a commercially sharpened blade and its not difficult with an 8" jointer knife.
