You’ll get 50 different responses to what is the “best” way to sharpen…I bought a really good book on sharpening called “The Perfect Edge; the Ultimate Guide to Sharpening”-by Ron Hock. I couldn’t sharpen anything before reading this book and now so far have been achieving razor sharpness consistently on my chisels. I use an angle guide (pros may scoff at this but it works for me) and a series of sandpaper (400-2000 grit) on a granite plate and hone at each grit until I have a good wire edge, then I move up to the next grit.
