How to sharpen bypass tools with a Darlac tool sharpener
- As the name suggests, the blade bypasses the fixed section and only the outside of the blade should be sharpened.
- Determine the original angle of grinding and imitate this angle as closely as possible.
- Using the whole abrasive area, move in a circular motion along the blade and back.
- Place the sharpener flat on the back of the blade and stroke only once, keeping the sharpener flat. This will remove any burr caused by sharpening.
