Preparing 17 degee chisels

    Rob - Should I put a micro-bevel on the 17 degree chisels? Also, the bevel appears concave/hollow ground - I assume from the grinder. Should this be maintained if I re-grind the bevel at some point?

    yes and yes. as far as a micro bevel goes, not so much a purposeful micro bevel, just what you typically do with a free hand sharpening. with the hollow grind, ensure you do it with an 8" grinding wheel. A 6" wheel will make the grind way too shallow and make for a weak edge. Ask me how I know.
