…why can’t you make thick irons laminated?
Why is it that my Grandad doesn’t grind. My Dad doesn’t have a grinder. And up until me buying swanky tools, I never had to grind?
Hard steels and thick irons.
It’s a combination which wasn’t found in my Grandad’s workshop.
And that thick hard steel takes some going to wear through. So out comes the grinder.
This modern ‘improvement’ to our irons puts a spanner in the works of any old school sharpening routine.
