Description

In Detail

The main feature of the Veritas Mk.II is its blade registration system squaring and setting the blade in one easy step. The Mk.II Guide has three bevel angle range configurations: a high angle (25° to 54° in seven increments), standard (15° to 40° in six increments), and a third for back bevels. The registration jig slides onto the guide body, centering and squaring the blade using an integral fence. The clamping mechanism registers on the face of the blade and is designed to accept flat and tapered blades, as well as blades with irregular geometry. The Mk.II features a three-position eccentric roller allowing a micro-bevel to be honed quickly and accurately after only a simple turn of a knob. The 50mm wide roller is stable for even the narrowest of blades. The guide can easily accommodate chisels or blades from 6 to 72mm wide and up to 13mm thick including spokeshave blades.

Excellent jig

I'm gonna keep this short as it's all been said in the previous reviews. This is the very best honing guide that I've tried. It may appear expensive, but it's very sturdy so I'm expecting many years use from it. The micro-bevel feature is excellent! Once you've got your primary bevel set, it only takes 2min to sharpen the micro-bevel to perfection. Highly recommended.

Very Good

This makes quick work of squaring and renewing battered old plane irons. It's a hefty piece of kit, you can feel the quality in your hand; it's going to last a while.

Topped off with lightning quick delivery from Axminster.

Brilliant

Chisels and plane irons are now the sharpest they have ever been. Easy to set up and use, beautifully made. I have a lot more cofidence in the wide roller of this jig than others with narrow wheels. No problems with chisels down to 3/8" if carefully set up and clamped evenly. Well worth to money, but liable to show up any previous sharpening errors on a chisel when first used, and may require more honing than expected. Given patience, the end result is superb and is muuch easier on subsequent use.

Well, clearly I should have bought one of these years ago

Wow. This is *so* much better than the other honing guides I've used. Not only is it beautifully made, solid and very, very easy to use it also produces better, sharper results. How is that possible? Better accuracy I guess. Either way, my chisels and irons have never been sharper.

As others have mentioned, it's better with wider chisels than narrow but, that said, I still managed to easily sharpen a 6mm chisel to the best edge I've ever had on it with a perfectly square micro-bevel.

Best honing guide by far

Try as I might, I cannot get consistent results from sharpening by hand a la Paul Sellers; I'm just too hit or miss. This guide just gives me consistent results every time. On ezelap medium and super fine diamond plates followed by paste and strop, plane irons and chisels are just perfect. What's more, sharpening is a pleasure and not a drudge.
