    Not the book I expected, this has a wealth more information than I anticipated. It’s going to be a long and happy read.
    Speed of delivery was nothing short of mercurial.
    Only my second book from Sean, won’t be my last though.
    Could we have one on lathes next please?

  2. Magnus Sundelin (verified owner)

    I would title this one a bible of sharpening. Sean has prettymuch covered everything necessary to know about sharpening. He’s a guru when it comes to this! Thanks a lot Sean for this classic masterpiece!🙏
