I've been collecting a set of Japanese-style bench chisels. According
to FWW review (Issue 200), I've been collecting some damn good
My intended use is on hardwoods, for cleaning joints, removing waste
from dovetailes &tc. I have mortising chisels for the heavy work. And
I've spent quite a few hours flattening/polishing the backs and
So far, I've been keeping the supplied 25 deg bevel angle on the
chisels with no micro-bevel. I'm considering using a micro-bevel.
I've built a jig to set micro-bevels at 26.5, 27.5, and 30 deg.
What di you guys/gals do on your bench chisels?
Thanks a heap,
