to a certain degree yes. But more importantly, learning to use the tool to it's maximum. Getting used to it, and understanding it.
I could have one of the finest hand planes or chisels. If the blades weren't sharpened well, or set up properly they would perform badly...or I simply wasn't used to using it, and could do a better job with the old stanley or marples chisel, with a well sharpened blade and a familiar feel in the hand
