The main thing, as Lev mentioned, is a consistent bevel which means using a jig. You will spend less time when you can get the same bevel angle every time. A secondary bevel also will save time (5°). I use an Eclipse jig for most chisels and a Richard Kell jig for small chisels. I use a Veritas MkII for plane blades. Most my sharpening is done on a Norton 1000/8000 water stone. Herbs “Yellow Stone” compound is an excellent final honing compound.
