Read up on ” scary sharp”. You can Google it and there will be about a gazillion references along with videos on You Tube.

If I were starting fresh I would get a set of Narex Chisels from Lee Valley tools along with their sharpening jig and then study some of the reference material out there.

DO NOT take to a grinder with a new chisel. Unless you are extremely careful and have a proper brown or white wheel on you grinder you will overheat the chisel and ruin its temper. Besides, the only reason to ever touch a grinder with a chisel would be if you dropped it and chipped the edge or something similar.
