I am building a hand saw collection for personal use in my new woodworking shop. I attended Matt Cianci’s saw sharpening class but we did not discuss cleaning up the sides of the saw plate after sharpening. Can anyone recommend the correct sharpening stone grit and type of stone to use in this saw sharpening step. Many Thx!

I use a worn medium grit diamond stone for that. The trick is to go very lightly taking only one or two strokes and checking your progress by cutting into a board.

Yes.. I only use a stone if the saw pulls to one side after setting
