My background and my living is mainly as a remodeling contractor so I have only invested in Stanley or Buck Bros. chisels from the big box stores.

I sharpen them on my belt sander, using a worn 100 or 120 grit belt, and then finish them on my strop board. They get pretty stinkin’ sharp.

The back of my left hand and wrist is bare naked as a testament to the sharpness achieved.

Just like my card scraper sharpening method, this is likely to create some negative feedback. The proof is in the pudding.
