The key to consistent and fast honing is repeatability — and this guide delivers it in spades. Redesigned, the Veritas® honing guide starts from first principles, increasing its range, capacity and accuracy. The main difference in the Mk. II version is its integral blade registration system that squares the blade and sets the bevel angle in one easy step.
1. High-angle range (25° to 54°)
2. Standard-angle range (15° to 40°)
3. Back-bevel range (10° to 20°)
The Mk.II Honing Guide has three gross bevel-angle range configurations: a high-angle range (25° to 54° in seven increments), a standard-angle range (15° to 40° in six increments), and a third range for back bevels. The guide body has two mating components that lock together precisely, secured by a single thumbscrew. The registration jig slides onto the guide body, centering and squaring the blade using an integral fence. The blade stop has discrete positions for preset angles. The clamping mechanism registers on the face of the blade (the unbevelled side), and is designed to accept flat and tapered blades, as well as blades with irregular geometry. The clamp bar is specifically shaped to securely hold the tool blade, preventing shifting. Once the blade is secured, the registration jig is removed.
The Mk.II retains the three-position eccentric roller of our original model, a feature that is universally liked as it allows a micro-bevel to be honed quickly and accurately after only a simple turn of a knob. No other action is needed and results are completely predictable. The 2" wide roller is stable for even the narrowest of blades.
The honing guide can easily accommodate chisels as narrow as 1/4", and blades as wide as 2-7/8" and up to 1/2" thick. Also works with short blades such as spokeshave blades. Manufactured from die-cast zinc alloy, with precision-machined brass and steel parts.
