Draw filed, sharpened, and stropped 

Sharp husqvarna hatchet - YouTube

lots of dull bands and chains

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

I saw a "rag method" video on YouTube where you use a file and a folded rag to elevate the poll end. You keep folding the rag to increase the angle and add facets to the blade. Finish by smoothing the facets, stoning, and finally stopping.  A quick touch up keeps it sharp.

Itís beautifully sharp. Iíve seen some people not be able to get knives that sharp. You truly could shave with it. 👍 good job no matter how you did it. But yeah, Iíve seen the same preview on YouTube. 

Me and knife sharpening, dad taught me a LONG TIME AGO how to do it. Iíve even amazed my friends how I can manage to make them that sharp. Persistence pays large dividends (kinda like sharpening a chainsaw). Keep toitivness! If in doubt, sound it out 🤪
