Sloped mortises – pretty cool.

Japanese chisels detected, where did you get them? rubankov.ru? What about sharpening – water stones, diamonds, ...?

Hello Yuriy! Glad to meet you again. You are right, I bought set of ten japaneese chisels in rubankov.net. Besides I have three japaneese water stones (not natural but artifitial) 400, 1000 and 6000 greet to sharpen these chises and other stuff. I finish sharpening with leather and “pasta goi”. These chises are very good for chopping out mortises. They have a bigger angle of a bevel, and very hard steel. But for paring I use stanly chisels because they have smoller angle of a bevel and they cut better (imho).

Yeah, right, Russians have to stick together :-)

Got it. I myself purchased DMT stones (rubankov.ru as well) and since then my sharpening adventures ended and turned into routine (Paul Sellers method works like a champ – search youtube if your’re interested).

Thanks. I will watch it tomorrow at my job. Internet at my phone is not so good. At my job internet is not so good as well. But at least it is free :)

Have your say...
