A first class honing system which combines the efficiency and reliability of a reverse running Creusen grinder with the famous German Koch honing wheels. The hard white honing wheel is for straight edges and shallow curved tools and the brown, more flexible wheel for curved edged tools. Also included is a block of Koch green honing soap for use on the wheels. Producing a true mirror-polished edge on your carving tools is simplicity itself, just apply a small amount of soap to the wheel and then gently apply the bevel of the tool to the top of the wheel to produce a razor-sharp polished edge. Wheel size: 120mm diameter x 20mm width, with a 9.5mm bore. N.B. The Koch felt honing wheels will require the simple drilling/reaming of the central hole before fitting to the shaft of the grinder.

Honing SystemHad this for a while now, added extension shaft additional felt wheel and guarding. I use it primarily for carving tools to produce the finest edge. Only lack is of a sufficiently sized adjustable tool rest - which I rectified with a home made version. Other than that it runs smooth and true. definitely a must have for carving.
