Package deal comprises the Veritas Mk.II Honing System and the Veritas Camber Roller
Veritas Mk.II Honing System
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. Sharpening stone not included
Veritas Camber Roller
This is an attachment specifically designed for use with the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide. When planing on large, flat surfaces, it is often desirable to hone a slight curve, or camber, into the edge of the blade. The Veritas Camber Roller Assembly has a barrel-shaped roller that allows limited rocking, whilst still maintaining an accurate and consistent bevel angle. Simply replace the standard roller assembly with the camber assembly and sharpen. The blade is still set using the registration jig, and the camber roller includes the standard eccentric system allowing micro-bevels to be honed.

Disappointing from VeritasIn general I am a veritas fan. I have 4 of their planes and I find them to be very good. However my Veritas honing jig (MK2) does not produce square edges out of the box. This becomes annoyingly apparent when you fettle a blade and a cap iron. Lining up the cutting edges produces skew sides to the extent that the cap iron/iron assembly will not load into their finely toleranced planes! I examined my technique thoroughly and found it to be ok and I was producing this effect repeatably. After much thinking, I filed the blade guide, using safe edge against the base of the guide. The jig now produces nearly square (I don't want to over shoot) which means it was definitely OOS in the first place.

Superb ToolI like to do things by hand when I can and the various sharpening jigs on the market just seemed like cheating but then I tried a chisel sharpened with one of these jigs and I saw the light. The ease and consistency with which it produces a reliable and accurate edge is a joy. This is a delight to use and well up to the usual quality engineering we expect from Veritas.

A must if you want perfect sharp bladesSharpening a plane blade or chisel by hand is an art in itself. Using this Veritas Mk.II Honing System makes it effortless and fun to do. I received my system and within 1 hour I had sharpened up every chisel and plane blade I had. Once you have got your blades razor sharp it take less than a minute to re sharpen when needed. You will not be disappointed if you buy this item.
