Restoring and sharpening a quality 12inch (30cm) Nicholson hand smooth file. I tried chemical sharpening with ferric chloride and It definitely made it feel sharper. The line near te tang after the ferric chloride soak is a thickness difference between the etched part and the original surface. Products used: 0:59 WD-40 1:34 Degreaser 1:51 Sodium carbonate 2:07 12V power supply 2:55 Ferric chloride 3:26 Sodium bicarbonate (and water) 3:56 WD-40 4:03 White mineral oil Interesting video about Nicholson made by a fellow maker: https://youtu.be/MmGPRQsPL3U ★Patreon★ https://www.patreon.com/blackbeardprojects ★Website★ http://blackbeardproject.com/ ★Follow me★ Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/BlackBeardProjects/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/BlackBeardProje Instagram ► https://www.instagram.com/black_beard_projects/
