    Hi guys, I'm sharpening some hand Plane blades and I have a question.
    Is it ok to sharpen it on a belt sharpener like a work sharp blade Grinder attatchment? It gives it a convex edge. To me it won't be quite as sharp but it'll last longer. Is that right? I can get it quite sharp on there if I sharpen the reverse side with an 800 grit stone. What do you guys think?

    I'm practicing so I can open a business one day so I'd be giving these blades to customers.

    Thanks guys,

    Bo
