In Detail

Sharpening a mortice chisel significantly improves performance. We can recommend this pair of specially made diamond coated cones for most Taiwanese and Japanese mortice chisels, and Veritas square hole punches. A coarse grit cone gives an initial grind, followed by a finer honing cone to create a sharp even edge.


Use the cones in a drill press or your morticer if you have a chuck adaptor (a handheld drill is neither suitable nor safe). Clamp the bit vertically and securely, or drill a hole in a block of wood the same diameter as the chisel’s shank. The chisel must be held firmly and perpendicular. Fasten the coarse cone in the chuck and align it with the chisel so it centres exactly in the end of the chisel, do this BEFORE switching on. Running at low speed (150 to 250rpm), gently lower the cone until it just makes contact with the mortice bit. Carefully grind until you obtain a clean surface around the entire bevel. Replace it with the 350-grit cone and repeat the process, lightly honing the inside bevel. Use a fine flat stone lap the sides of the bit to remove any burrs.

Works well BUT!

My criticism is no chisel size range is mentioned in the production description that this can accommodate, I had to find out the hard way.
I've found out this device woks well at sharpening mortise chisels UP TO 14mm. As I'm using a 16mm mortise chisel it's of no use.

Very easy to use. I put the sharpening cone in the pillar drill, and the mortice chisel in a machine vice. It took about 5 minutes, including change-over time, and honing the outsides on a diamond stone, to sharpen 2 chisels. If you don't need to sharpen mortice chisels very often, this tool is good.

The cone angle matched my chisels perfectly.
I found the best way to use these was to mount an old hand operated drill horizontal in the bench vice with the sharpening cone in the chuck. Holding the chisel in one hand and pushing it gently against the cone while rotating the drill. I did apply a tiny drop of water on the cone.
My chisels were not damaged just “dull” and it only took a few moments to return the keen edges.
I sharpened 6 chisels, and the cones still seem ok, not sure how long the diamond grit will last.
