Its sad that most of my marples chisels and now 2 of my ashley isles have chips in the blades from me hitting steel/metal. Carving out a catch for a door, hitting a pin by mistake, whatever.
This marples had the largest chip, it was almost 1/16, visible from 4 feet.
After working with the nortons from 220 up to 8000, I got a perfect mirror finish,(tough for me to shoot it, but its like a mirror), the edge is sharp, at least sharp for me, still havent gotten out the chip all the way. Do I just keep hitting the stones till it dissappears, or just wait till I sharpen again and over time Ill catch up.
Id hate to have to grind down ashly isles chisels because of a tiny chip.
Must it be perfectly even?(dont laugh at me. Ive never had chisels so sharp as they are now, they are like razor blades, but Im puzzled with the chipouts, Im trying to be more careful)
IM very close to shipping them up to Ken to see if he can work out the chips. Ken, birthday boy? whatta ya think here?(the chips on the left side, I know they are dirty, but I clean them eventually, I only worry about sharpness)
