Softer woods tend to shred and tear more easily when cut, while harder woods can actually bend or nick a chisel's edge. When cutting softer woods, a slim, razor-like edge is more effective. When cutting harder, denser woods, a steeper, stronger edge can work better and last longer.

How do we establish an appropriate angle on our cutting edge?

For precise sharpening, use the Veritas Honing Guide with this jig to set the angle before you begin honing. 15°, 20°, 25°, 30°, and 35° increments allow for standardized angle settings across a broad range. This guide takes the guesswork out of the sharpening process.
