For those who predominantly sharpen narrow blades, Veritas now offer a narrow-blade honing guide consisting of the narrow-blade clamping head, the standard roller base and the angle registration jig. It clamps blades from 1/8″ to 1-1/2″ wide using parallel jaws to ensure blades stay square to the jig. Whether they have bevelled or square edges, blades are kept centered and tight to the reference face of the jig by the canted jaws. It accepts bevel edged chisels up to 15/32″ thick and square-edged chisels up to 11/32″ thick, and hones bevel angles from 15° to 40° and back bevels from 10° to 20°.
Further information on both the Veritas Narrow Honing Guide and the other options can be found on our website.
You can preorder your Veritas Narrow Honing Guide here. We expect to receive delivery mid to late June.
