This honing guide overcomes the problem of accurately sharpening narrow blades. This unique guide consists of the narrow-blade clamping head, the standard roller base and the angle registration jig. The guide clamps blades from 3mm(1/8") to 38mm(1.1/2") wide. The specially designed parallel jaws ensure your blades stay square to the jig. The jig takes blades with bevelled or square edges. The canted jaws always keep them centred and tight to the reference face of the jig. It accepts bevel edge chisels up to 12mm(15/32") thick and square edged chisels up to 9mm(11/32") thick. The guide hones bevel angles from 15° to 40° and back bevels from 10° to 20°.

Great customer service and the right productI originally bought the standard Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide which is sold here for around £40, after using it on a chisel I was quite disappointed that they moved around. I looked on Axminster to see if there were any accessories to help with holding the chisel and I came across this set. The staff at Nuneaton branch went out of their way and let me return the used Mk.II Honing Guide for this Honing Guide Set. Great service and the product is the perfect guide for honing Western and Japanese chisels as I was unsure if they would fit.
