Welcome to Ljs

This method called the Scary sharp method has been around for a long time. It was first introduced by Mike Dunbar
a famous Chair maker through an article in Finewoodworking. He developed the technique because of he traveled in a good number of woodworking shows and didn’t always have access to water for wet stones. Like many subjects on LJs everyone thinks their way is the best way. I used the scary sharp method for years and now I use a tool that still uses sand paper it’s made by Worksharp.

Sharping by hand ,with sand paper or with stones or some sort of machine will all give you good results.
