is Taper Grinding by hand still feasible?

I visited a grinder in Sheffield to explore taper grinding of long saws.

Whilst his stone is smaller diameter than those shown in old drawings it did work quickly.

If we were to fix the blade to a ‘scorching board’ it will be more controllable. When I run this particular saw in a log, I’ll blog again – I hope for a huge boost in performance.
