It is Paul Sellers method I’m asking about…I used it recently for a few plane Irons and chisels.

Lwllms…Once the chisel/Iron has that shape, O don’t see how it will waste any more time than another method. To re-hone, I still don’t take very many strokes, and to re-grind once that convex bevel gets too steep, is something you have to do anyway occasionally with any method, right?

I don’t seem to have too much trouble KEEPING the back of my tools flat, once the initial work is done…and my waterstones flatten up super fast on my big chunk of granite with sandpaper on it…That might mean I have cheap waterstones that won’t last too long…we’ll see.

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
