An axe is a beautiful tool. It deserves to be treated with respect. Be nice to your axe.
From files and oil stones to belt grinders and polishing wheels, this guy covers the basics in less than 8 minutes. He also provides tips on filing steel,cleaning files, and making sure you don’t get your axe head too hot if you use power tools.
He advises users of power tools to sharpen their axes bare-handed so they can touch the edge often to make sure it’s not getting too hot. Personally, I prefer to wear gloves to protect my hands from clumsy mistakes, and use water frequently to ensure the steel is cool.
Enough talk; enjoy the video.
