The tried-and-true design of a side-clamping guide is familiar to most woodworkers. Our side-clamping honing guide is a piece of modern-day engineering that improves on this established design while maintaining the flexibility of this type of guide. Chisels and plane blades ranging from 1/8" (3mm) to 2 1/2" fit securely for accurate honing. The unique three-point holding position holds odd shapes such as plow and shoulder plane blades.
The guide has two different blade positions (upper and lower) that support most types and lengths of chisels and plane blades in a balanced, ergonomic set-up. Most woodworkers will find one of these positions best suits their specific needs and will build a registration jig for that position.
Its simplicity makes this the go-to guide for rapid and repeatable honing for most woodworkers’ workflow. Paired with a shop-built registration jig, it will provide a flexible chisel and plane blade sharpening set-up for most workshops.
