I worked on the wedge today and used it for quite a while to hog out some cottonwood logs. The cord is still as tight as when I put it on and the blade hasn't budged. I'm impressed. The blade holds an edge quite well. It still shaves off a piece of paper with no effort. The angle seems to be just right and there is very little stress to my wrist so all in all I must have got it right.
