Rick’s Tip

There are numerous ways to sharpen wood chisels.  Many people sharpen them on a bench grinder, belt sander or other various ways.  These methods work just fine to create a new edge on the chisel, however they are sharpened with a straight grind.  When using a chisel with a straight grind, the wood wants to push straight back towards your hand.

The proper way to sharpen a chisel is with a hollow grind.  A hollow grind is created by sharpening the chisel at an angle, using the edge of the grinding wheel.   This removes a slightly greater amount of material in the center of the chisel surface.  This causes the grinding swirls to go at an angle versus straight up the chisel.  When using a chisel that has a hollow grind the cutting edge will be sharper and the wood will “pig tail” up and away from your hand.
