Great video demonstraton Matt. I have one of these units and sure enough it does work as advertised. You showed us how easy it can be.

Right after I got the Worksharp I thought it was pretty cool to shave my arm with the chisle to test it but kept on cutting myself. Almost quit. Still have to do it now and then. ;-J

58j35bonanza – The WorkSharp really holds up to what it says it can do. I showed Matthew how to do the chisel one time and he was able to create a razor sharp chisel on his attempt. It’s fool proof and a solid piece of equipment in my opinion. Perhaps others can chime in with their thoughts as well.

Here is the chisel he sharpened in the video. Mind you this is only pine.

Way to be Matty – i just opened up my worksharp yesterday … cmon over and you can sharpen all my chisels too ;). Im looking forward to your stumpynubs worksharp station, i bet you could give me a few pointers when you’re done.
