The concept of Scary Sharpening has been around for years, but with the evolution of new abrasives Scary Sharpening has become a very effective and affordable way to sharpen a variety of your woodworking tools. This system of sharpening uses self adhesive micro finishing sheets on a flat substrate such as our Polycarbonate Plates.
Scary Sharpening Abrasive Sheets range from 80 micron for initial grinding to 3 micron for polishing chisel backs, plane irons and knives;. When sharpening lubricate the abrasive sheets with an oil such as Shield Technology HoneRite No.1 for fast cutting. Using an oil will prevent swarf from clogging the papers. Swarf can also be removed easily with a paper covered magnet. For the best results use with one of our AUKTools or Veritas Honing Guides to achieve an excellent edge on chisels and plane blades.
