How to create a camber

A camber lets you take nice bites out of your work rather than spending what seems like a lifetime shaving whisper thin cut after cut to get your smooth surface. By cambering the edge you’re able to remove a lot of wood quickly and quite easily.

To create a camer,  tilt your blade side to side when sharpening it, putting pressure on the left then right as you work the iron on the stone.
