About this title

Synopsis:

Sharp Tools Work Better!

If you've never experienced the pleasure of using a really sharp tool, you're missing one of the real pleasures of woodworking. In The Perfect Edge, the mystery of the elusive sharp edge is solved by long-time sharpening expert and tool maker Ron Hock. You'll soon find how easy and safe hand tools are to use.

This book covers all the different sharpening methods so you can either improve your sharpening techniques using your existing set-up, or determine which one will best suit you needs and budget. Ron shows you the tricks and offers expert advice to sharpen all your woodworking tools, plus a few around-the-house tools that also deserve a perfect edge.

About the Author:

Ron Hock is the owner of Hock Tools, a 25-year old cottage industry that makes acknowledged superior blades for planes and other woodworking tools. Since making his first planes, he has spent 25 years learning about tool steel metallurgy, cutting edge geometry, hand woodworking tools and sharpening. His interest and expertise regarding sharp edges comes from a blade-maker's perspective; he has given countless lectures about steel, tools, and heat treatment.
