I was recently looking at some larger carving tools (50 -60 mm) for future purchase, I like doing big projects, and I noticed that at least with the Pfiel tools that they seemed to have a second bevel right at the edge. ToolMonger linked to a pretty cool tool for aiding in the sharpening of curved blades – the Oar Sharpener. I recently acquired some thin leather, and I’m going to create some stropping blocks with blocks of wood shaped to the insides of my gouges with leather glued on them. The strop is a really amazing addition to the sharpening set, and I use it before I start carving anything.
For straight shanked tools, such as wood chisels, carving gouges and tools for power carvers.
For an exact replication of the shape on turning skew chisels with a straight or curved edge.

I know from experience that chisels normally need a bit of fettling before being used however, on opening the box I found that the two straight chisels and the skew had a single bevel at c30 degrees. If you use components of the Tormek system combined with other types of grinder or brands of water cooled sharpening machines, we cannot make any guarantees regarding the function and results.
Avoid cheap stones from Asia.) The finishing benchstone for the final sharpening is a TRANSLUCENT Arkansas, and should be called thus, not 'fine', 'white', 'hard' or 'soft'.
The chisel seems to remove wood pretty well but when i tried to carve with the run of grain as in a letter T the pine just splintered and would not come out clean. Me, I'd leave the chisels as they are and use them for more woodworking applications and treat myself to proper lettering chisels with the 2 bevels. Classic hand Tools in the UK or Tools for Working Wood in the USA are distributors for both.

If you get a translucent stone, which looks translucent when oiled up, you will be sure of getting the cutting quality that gives us the final edge we want for our carving tools. You'll quickly have a few tools you can play with elsewhere and as you move on to other carving, sharpen tools AS YOU NEED THEM.
This way you'll get into your carving quicker - which is, after all what it's all about - and you'll build up your working kit of tools efficiently. The new products will include bi-metal hole saws, double-fluted step drill bits and wood boring bits.
