Product Details

This premium 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. The sharpening sled has a lifetime warranty and in the event that it fails due to a material or manufacturing defect will be replaced free of charge. ©

Anthony Denniss

Super smooth moment, well thought out engineering. Makes sharpening uniformed consistently

James Bullock

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.

Wesley Mckay

Makes sharpening my chisels and plane irons a lot easier.

Steve Hill

I feel a bit of a cheat as I want to buy this, but have not. I thought other readers might want to know why. I use Shapton sharpening stones. They are 210mm long. This has a capacity of up to 200mm.

I also have a couple of the larger Norton stones: 203mm.

I also use Japanese chisels which are heavily tapered. Sometimes they are 12mm thick at the point you want to clamp them to get a fine angle. This guide stops at 9mm.

Great idea: I look forward to version 2!

Ollie Wright

Wow what a product, if only I knew this existed years ago it would have saved so much time compared to setting up manual honing guides. All you have to do is insert the chisel into the holder ( tip - the length inserted determines the sharpening angle ) and sharpen. Very easy to switch between grits of stone while the blades is clamped which means you can return to the same sharpening angle.

Mehdi Zitouni

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 realy well compared to others that damage the stone

Evan Jenkins

I do a lot of sharpening of chisels and plane blades and I have never found a product that gives consistent results like this. I simply lock the jig off at my desired angle and sharpen then hone the blade as required.
