    Now that you have that secondary bevel, how many times can you get away with that technique before you have to regrind the primary out to the apex?

    Buy a power plane and stop making stone age videos

    I could listen to the shave and that delicate "pop" as the blade clears the grain at the end of the cut ALL DAY LONG.

    All caps for emphasis, not yelling at anyone πŸ˜‡

    Your only as sharp as your tools



  5. H2OMANLV on July 21, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    I’d like to know what kind of stones those are. That’s the whole secret to sharpening. Following the edge of the blade is natural.



  6. Doublethizzle on July 21, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    And this is why I pay to have mine done. Which means, the lesson for today is . . . know what you’re good at, and more importantly, what you suck at.

    Nice patches. 3RD ID

    Mans built like robin williams

    OR you go and 3d print 2 pieces (1 for each angle) to hold that blade at the correct angle for you. No reason to teach how to work harder.

    So that’s how paper is made?



  11. im edbone on July 21, 2023 at 3:04 pm

    or you just buy paper from where ever whatever artificial economies your globalist corrupt politicians/business are forcing you to buy from for the current 10-20yrs

    Don’t mix your grits. Sharpening 101. #fail



  13. Drengr on July 21, 2023 at 3:05 pm

    If you have trouble maintaining the correct angle, cut a wood scrap the width of your blade and with a 25Β° angle or whatever angle you need. I have several blocks with my sharpening kit with the angles labeled for each tool. I had a bad habit of going 18Β° with everything until I started using scrap wood for guides.

    You can train yourself to do different angles free hand, but bad habits and bad angles can be hard to correct.

    do it this way= save 1000s on sending to a company to do It for you, same with drill bits etc



  15. Reese Martin on July 21, 2023 at 3:09 pm

    Dude don’t need paper



  16. rainerjahn on July 21, 2023 at 3:13 pm

    haha so much wrong facts



  17. Travis Statler on July 21, 2023 at 3:15 pm

    This guy is a serious woodworker. Nice job sir.



  18. Jeff Zweygardt on July 21, 2023 at 3:16 pm

    I just went from reading you blog on hand plane setup and this is the first thing to come up on YouTube. πŸ˜‚



  19. Danny Padilla on July 21, 2023 at 3:16 pm

    32 seconds that took him 45 why not just say under 50 seconds



  20. Eric R on July 21, 2023 at 3:17 pm

    If only the video were long enough to not run out of time.. Why does everyone cut their videos so short? πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

    ❀❀❀❀ love this!!



  22. Wizzdumm Headley on July 21, 2023 at 3:17 pm

    Better to have a sharp axe than big muscles !



  23. Cody Moreland on July 21, 2023 at 3:18 pm

    Been building fine furnature for years. Barely ever use hand planes. Maybe a couple times. Never even sharpened the one I have. I do like a sharp set of chisels but to each their own



  24. R420ISH on July 21, 2023 at 3:18 pm

    he can make rolling papers and toilet papers.. WOW



  25. Robert Shoemaker on July 21, 2023 at 3:19 pm

    Awesome thank you for showing your technique for sharpening



  26. Chris Eason on July 21, 2023 at 3:19 pm

    Canadians, goofy for 200 years now.



  27. Mitch on July 21, 2023 at 3:21 pm

    I own a small knife & tool sharpening business, just wanted to say two things:

    1: Rob’s doing it correctly, follow these steps. Get a sharpening jig if you’re struggling to hold the blade correctly.

    2: Thank you for getting primary and secondary bevel correct. I’m sick of having to explain to people that the cutting edge is NOT the primary bevel.



  28. Ski Bird on July 21, 2023 at 3:21 pm

    This guy is the real deal. I have one of his dovetail saws and have ‘tried’ to master this method as well. It works but every time I watch this, it humbles me.



  29. Josh Smith on July 21, 2023 at 3:22 pm

    Bro uses a stone to sharpen a stone and has his sharpening skills honed to the finest fucking edge. What a legend.



  30. anthony heather on July 21, 2023 at 3:24 pm

    first thing i saw was the 1ssf patch on apron brilliant



  31. Gary Dunkerley on July 21, 2023 at 3:25 pm

    Start hollow ground, Rub lightly in figure 8, NEVER bevel back of blade keep flat, deburr slapping back & forth across palm of hand. Result Sharper than a razor Every time. Done correctly, plane will whistle and transparent shavings. 3 generations/100 years.

    Thank you for the knowledge my friend 🀘



  33. gurkairai on July 21, 2023 at 3:28 pm

    To learn



  34. C WB on July 21, 2023 at 3:29 pm

    Dull tools are also dangerous. Great job, for those wondering about maintaining the correct angle. You use your fingertips on the hone to maintain the angel. You just learn the proper placement.



  35. Manfred Knorr on July 21, 2023 at 3:29 pm

    So, you used a 300 grit diamond plate (?) to level the 16000 grit stone. Then you sharpened the blade on the stone, then on the other side of the diamond plate.

    Would you have any links to buy these? I’ve never seen them before.



  36. John Pittman on July 21, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    That was actually 47 seconds



  37. Barbora Ledererova on July 21, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    From 300 to 16k?
    16k will do bugger all if used after 300…



  38. RED on July 21, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    True canadian!!!



  39. Brain Spots on July 21, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    Where to buy these



  40. daniel howard on July 21, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    What about another sharp blade.



  41. Devon Stokes on July 21, 2023 at 3:31 pm

    Is it me or is dudes apron too clean to be in a shop



  42. Todd Thompson on July 21, 2023 at 3:39 pm

    who is this guy? pimping uniform



  43. Stephen Wolfe on July 21, 2023 at 3:43 pm

    So Awesome



  44. Joshua Lowery on July 21, 2023 at 3:46 pm

    I like watching this guy, he’s so dang good!πŸ˜‚



  45. Illuminati on July 21, 2023 at 3:49 pm

    For beginners I suggest not going that fast because you will screw up



  46. TheMonkdad on July 21, 2023 at 3:50 pm

    It’s very impressive but I’d bet that I would need an individual hands on lesson.



  47. scud69er on July 21, 2023 at 3:50 pm

    Beautiful…Just beautiful



  48. Random Events on July 21, 2023 at 3:51 pm

    Reminds me of my dad. He still has a sharpening stone his dad gave him when he was 15 years old (1971).
    I have a 10 inch scar on my hand from his freshly sharpened wood scraper, I was 16 when I did that (year 2000).



  49. Mike Rose 🌹 on July 21, 2023 at 3:52 pm

    I hone my own straight razors on my japanese naniwa super stones. My grit progression is 1k 3k 8k then finish with 12k. Traditional wetshaving is the way to go πŸ’ˆπŸ˜πŸ€™πŸ»πŸ’ˆ



  50. papa Tutti on July 21, 2023 at 3:54 pm

    Damn! That’s sharp!
