I have been sharpening handplanes and chisels for 40 years now and I am always open to new methods from an expert such as Hendrik. A few years ago I had the opportunity to talk to Hendrik at a wood show and he was such a down to earth guy. I would love to have the DVD to gain more insight into what he has to say and show me.
