I have been experimenting with a variety of plane blade metals from M2 HSS, A2, and Japanese blue and white. I am finding that all have distinct ideal bevels. Even sharpening techniques from micro-bevels, double bevels, and Harrelson Stanley’s side sharpening method seem to have interesting and controversial effects. I am looking for some in depth literature to understand why this is. Can anyone suggest some good literature. Lee and Lie-Nielsen’s books were a start but I’m curious to getmore in depth.
