I have a cheap sharpening stone (stanley, maybe?) that I bought a couple of years ago, and never really used. I’m starting/attempting to hand cut dovetails for some small projects, and have been reading up here on LJ about sharpening techniques for my equally cheap chisels. I’m hoping to pick up those Narex chisels over the holidays, and figured I better figure things out before I go too much farther. Forgive my ignorance, but does anyone know which side is which? I was hoping to see some real difference in the scratch pattern made by using one side, and then the other, but I don’t feel like I really saw one.
Stone is grey on one side and brown on the other, about 2” by 8”
