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. Sharpening stone not included

I preserved with one of these for years. Then I switched to a side clamp guide and then just went freehand.
I found it almost impossible to get it to grip tight enough to stop it slipping at an angle.

Before of blind Veritas love in the reviews

This accomplishes the job well, compared to cheaper honing guides. As others have mentioned, it struggles to hold smaller chisels but I think there's an addon for that.

What nobody is really mentioning is the questionable material choices. For something that comes in contact with water, there's an awful lot of parts that rust easily. Namely the bolts that clamp the blade and the mechanism of the roller. The bolt rust is just cosmetic but the real issue is with the roller. A combination of rust and debris seems to build up inside the roller which causes a less than smooth motion. Mine has started making a horrible noise on each stroke. WD40 helps for a little bit but some horrible stuff starts to ooze out all over the diamond plates throughout use. Removing the roller for cleaning is fiddly and involves a 1/16" allen key, with 1.5mm being too small and 2.0mm being too big.

I wouldn't expect this lack of design quality for any tool manufacturer, let alone one as 'premium' as Veritas.

Built to last

I already have one from another manufacturer but saw the video and decided to buy it, it is amazing and when used with the Axminster diamond sharpening stone the results are amazing. I bought it to sharpen the blade of my new Axminster Jack plane which me friend bought me as a present as I didn't want to mess it up, what can I say I now have a perfectly sharpened blade. I now have gone and sharpened all my chisels and plane blades even managing to salvage a curved blade caused by my oil stone which evidently has a hollow in it. My chisels are the sharpest that they have ever been and the Nuneaton store is amazing with very friendly and helpful staff, this is my first purchase at Axminster and it will not be my last purchase.

Veritas mk2 honeing guide

Bought one of these yesterday its very well made so far have only sharpened plane irons on it, yes it works and dose produce a good bevel I have been freehand sharpening for over 50 years its the way back then when thats how it was done and once mastered its very quick and over the years I like to think I have perfected it and have never used a guide but for one who is not sure or cant get repeated results this is a very good tool well made easy to set up and produces very good results, but old ways die hard as they say so think I will stick to what I know and takes a lot less time

Great but has problems

I bought this jig thinking it was the best on the market, it's top quality I love it but it's not perfect. I no the issue with it not holding narrow chisels, I've had a problem with wider ones, the clamping mechanism isn't good enough in my opinion. There's no grip, just metal on smooth metal the chisels can and will move. The other problem is when I came to do a micro bevel for the 2nd time I could barely see it. The reason being the. Brass roller had worn very quickly on the inner circumference, it's quite loose now. I was expecting it to wear on contact with the stones but not inside and so quickly. I've sharpened 3 chisels and now I'm looking for a new roller. I think they are only available if you contact veritas. I'm not happy with this issue because I wasn't expecting it so quickly, why couldn't they put some seals there to stop the abrasive water getting in? I've always washed and oiled it after use. Something no one else has mentioned probably because they Havant realised yet. Bear in mind the roller wears out very quickly :(
