Sharpening the blade of a wooden spokeshave

Remove the blade from the handle by pinching the tangs that protrude through the handle and pushing them downward. For sharpening, the blade is held with the tangs facing down. To prevent the tangs from catching on your work surface, set your sharpening stone atop a wood block to provide the necessary clearance. Holding the blade by the tangs, set its bevel flat on the stone. Because the blade Is longer than the width of your stone, hold the cutting edge diagonally as you slide the bevel back and forth on the stone. Repeat with the blade angled the other way. Repeat again with the blade held straight (above). Once the sharpening Is complete, turn the blade over and hone the flat side to remove the burr formed by the sharpening process.
