FULL DESCRIPTION

View demonstration video.

This honing guide sled allows for fast, consistent and accurate honing of wood chisels and plane irons. Precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminium the sliding carriage glides back and forth on a stainless steel bar, that travels through a housing which features 50 micro ball-bearings. These micro bearings ensure a smooth, effortless movement with no lateral play, allowing for consistent longitudinal movement over the length of the sharpening stone.

The head uses a clamping bar that registers on the face of the blade and accepts flat and tapered blades up to 9mm thick and 52mm wide. A series of parallel lines are etched onto the head to ensure the chisel or plane iron sits square to the jig. You can lock-off the head at your desired honing angle anywhere from 10-60° using an Allen key or as favoured by most, you can leave the head unlocked and simply copy the existing angle of the blade edge. The base of the jig accepts water stones from 160mm to 200mm in length and up to 80mm in width, held in position using the aluminium clamping block. Beautifully made from CNC machined aluminium combined with solid brass knurl screws this jig sits on four brass feet with rubber sole pads that prevent the sled from walking when sharpening.

This sled, unlike a traditional hand held honing guide eliminates any lateral or longitudinal play, allowing the blade to smoothly, consistently and accurately move over the sharpening stone. ©

What a wonderfully engineered well thought out pie...

What a wonderfully engineered well thought out piece of kit ! This will not only speed up your sharpening process but take a lot of the guess work out of it too. The engineering looks and feels robust and sturdy and finished well...after inspection not one sharp edge or dodgy thread anywhere and very swift delivery. Thank you Rutland's...another quality product at much less than some other similar premium products.

Please Rutland can you add a video showing how it works on YouTube or here it will be so helpful because this looks like a new jig that would work really well compared to others that damage the stone
