In Detail

The Axminster Trade Honing Guide Assembly for the Ultimate Edge coupled with the Micro Bevel Guide forms a very precise stand-alone honing guide.

The unique feature of this combination is the high level of accuracy and control it offers. Using a bench or diamond stone, you can sharpen all your chisels and bench plane blades with the bevel angle of your choice from a shallow 20° to a steep 40°. After establishing the primary bevel, you can add a micro bevel from as little as 1°, although around 5° is the generally accepted norm.

The Plane Blade Honing Guide is perfect for plane blades, bevel edge, mortice and Japanese chisels. The jaws are slightly undercut dovetail to ensure secure clamping of a blade or chisel against the body. The jaws can accommodate blades or chisels from 6mm to 66mm wide. The left-hand jaw is reversible, one side straight and the other slightly curved enabling you to clamp chisels with unparallel sides equally securely.

Both parts are predominately stainless steel and precision made on CNC machines in Axminster’s own manufacturing facility.

Set-up could not be easier, based on a blade projection of 25mm the guide includes a small setting jig. The degree scale is clear and easy to read with the markings permanently etched. The wide roller ensures perfect stability and at the same time prevents undue stone wear if you are using a Japanese water stone.

This guide can accommodate a wide variety of blades in a wide range of sizes and guarantees precise results every time.
