HOCK TOOLS -- Sharpening Notes
Honing guides are useful things. If you have one, now is a good time to use it. Most block and bench plane blades are ground to 25° but some smart folks argue that there need only be clearance under the heel of the bevel. In other words, since the average bench plane blade is bedded at 45°, any bevel angle 10° or so less than that will provide the needed clearance. And a thicker bevel is stronger so the edge should last longer. Bench plane and block plane blades have traditionally been beveled to 25°. Our blades for the handmade wooden planes were specified by James Krenov to have a 30° bevel. Chisels get different bevel angles for different tasks: 25° or lower for paring, 30° or more for chopping. Experiment a bit with different angles to see which one works best for the wood and your style of work. A honing guide helps with all this by establishing an angle and sticking to it. It can also shorten the whole process by letting you raise the blade a degree or two so that you’re only honing the very edge. The angle of the bevel is determined by how far the blade sticks out of the honing guide.

Note – This video was captured from a live session back in 2011. It was posted on the site (you may have already seen it) but because Ustream only allowed me to download a Flash version, I wasn’t able to put the video into the official feeds and folks with Apple devices couldn’t see it at all. via Pocket
