  • Got my new chisels...

    Well I got my new Pfeil chisels from KMS tools the other day. I am very happy with the balance of tool and the way it feels in my hand. but I have had to strop these way more than my Two Cherries, the V-tool is the exception. I am carving black walnut and usually they would get knicked up when doing stop cuts. Is this something that goes away after they get worn down a little, or is this going to be a constant battle? They sharpen wonderfully though, I could shave with these things. Maybe that's just why they are cheaper. :'(

    Lorax, I am shocked! I have never had a problem with my pfeil tools holding an edge. But I have never used Two Cherries. One thing I noticed about pfeil: the bevel angle is less than with most other brands. This gets them extemely sharp and they go through soft wood like puke through a prom dress but for harder woods, you may need a wider bevel. I would not suggest you try to regrind them though. If you are not happy with them, you may want to consider returning them.

      Black Walnut is probably on the outside edge of what the factory Pfeil bevel can handle.
      Compare the angle of the two cherries against the Pfeil; I think the Pfeil will have a more acute angle which (like the Cap't. says) will make it cut easier.

      Occasionally, a tool will require resharpening a few times to escape the brittle edge, but I have never experienced that condition with Pfeil.

      You may want to put a secondary 'micro-bevel' on some of the finer gouges #2,3,5 to reduce chipping or edge roll-over.

        He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

        Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

        It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
