(Yet Another) Question about sharpening a chisel
I have read more than once that you control the square/skew of a chisel while sharpening using finger pressure on the back of the blade, but I haven’t found out exactly what that means in the real world.
I assume that the issue of “finger pressure” doesn’t involve rocking the chisel on the stone, but instead refers to keeping the chisel flat on the stone while applying more pressure on one or the other of the corners?
In the attached figure of the topside of a chisel I’m currently honing, using a honing guide, you can see that the secondary bevel at Corner #1 is wider than the secondary bevel at Corner #2. I’m getting a wire burr on the back that starts at Corner #1 but doesn’t make it to Corner #2.
It seems logical to me that when I put this chisel back on the stone that I’d apply more pressure on Corner #2, but I’m not sure that’s correct. Is that in fact the case?
