Best way to sharpen an axe

Hickory handle axe bought blunt

I use a file to grind it down to a good edge, then a whetstone to put on a finishing edge. The proper angle should be about 22.5 degree (half of a 45 degree angle).

The best way to sharpen an axe involves creating smoothly polished primary and secondary bevels of uniform width, and preparing acuteness on each side. You are required to use a 10" single or double-cut mill file.
