Why Add A Micro-Bevel?
Sometimes referred to as a secondary bevel. This is a narrow bevel (no more than 1/32") applied right at the edge of the blade and is ideally about 2° to 5° greater than the primary bevel. A micro-bevel slightly strengthens the edge and limits the really fine honing required to create a razor-sharp edge to just the tip of the blade, saving wear on the fine abrasive. A micro-bevel also makes any touch-up honing that much easier, since only a small amount of metal needs to be removed from the tip, rather than from the entire bevel.

Why Add A Hollow-Grind?
On a hollow grind, the actual tool angle (at the point) is 2 to 5 degrees less than the apparent tool angle (at the heel), depending on the radius of the abrasive wheel and the length of the hollow face. This reduces the force needed to drive the too land allows for easier touch-ups to sharpen since there is less metal. However, there is a trade-off — a hollow-ground tool has less metal to buttress the cutting edge and it wears faster. For this reason, hollow-grind only light-duty tools such as carving knives and paring chisels. Others are best flat-ground.

Types of Chisels Sharpened

Types Of Wood Chisels Sharpened

BEVEL edged chisels are slightly undercut making them easy to push into corners. They are normally used for finishing dovetail joints.


FIRMER chisels have a blade with a rectangular cross-section. This means that they are stronger and can be used for tougher/heavier work.


PARING chisels is a longer, thinner chisel which can be pushed into long joints such as housing joints. It is used for cleaning up the joint and to make it an accurate fit.
