Brillant

Being disabled I like to make life easier for myself and that is why I had to try this honing set. The price to me is not too expensive has it has a quality feel, build and look that a lot of tools do not come with. This is a 5 piece set that is extremely easy to set up and use and produced the sharpest of blades on all of my chisels and YES there that sharp I can shave hairs from my arm very easily. I looked at the Lie Nielson honing guide and in my eyes it just seemed too expensive to buy firstly the honing guide and then if you want to sharpen anything different all the other fittings to buy and I just could not justify it. I don't give good reviews if something doesn't come up to scratch but this is just Brilliant and why not buy it if you want to have sharp blades on chisels and planer blades or anything else. WELL WORTH THE MONEY

Excellent results - but at a price!

There are many who believe that it is impossible to be a true craftsman if you have to resort to sharpening using going guides... And there are many craftsman who believe that this is absolute nonsense. With several honing guides on offer, which one is"the best"?

There is no doubt in my mind that the Veritas system is the best, primarily because it enables even a novice to produce perfectly square, razor sharp edges, as long as the stones are flat or the abrasive is stuck to a flat surface! The advantage of the system is that it includes a guide to keep blades and irons square to the direction of movement, which is more tricky to set on other devices, and that it has an angle setting that improves the quality of subsequent honing or resharpening of edges. The cambered roller allows the user to taper the edges of plane irons to avoid tracks, which just isn't available in other systems.

The MkII system on its own is fine for wider chisels and plane irons, but one major difficulty I had was the clamping of narrow chisels. This is overcome with the addition of the narrow blade attachment, which is very handy for chisels less than 6mm wide. Having said that, it has become my preferred way of holding all chisels as they are clamped across and not from the top, preventing them from twisting (although this doesn't happen with wider chisels if the MkII is set properly) and being automatically aligned, which is much quicker.

But the price... This is definitely an investment (and they come from North America, which makes them comparitively more expensive in the UK). If you are starting from scratch, I think the choice comes down to how much time you want to spend learning how to sharpen your chisels and plane irons. If you would much rather spend your time using the tools and can justify the price, then this system, whilst expensive, is the way to go. Other guides work just as well, but you have to set the angle and alignment- although home made jigs are not difficult to make! Buying the complete set together saves a little money too...
