I am practicing my hand sharpening on some DMT diamond stones.
I have a chisel that I have boogered up a little bit and it has a very noticable skew. It is a 6mm chisel, I usually don’t have problems on the larger chisels.
But question is, any tips on correcting a skew and making the blade edge square again, aside from using some sort of jig?
I will use a jig if I have to or a sharpening guide if necessary but I try to shy away from those things because I want to be proficient without them. Also as a side note, I can usually get pretty close by applying more or less pressure on one side or the other. Invariably I always get out of square though. I follow the Paul Sellers method of sharpening.
