Veritas MK II Honing Guide
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
A must have!
I've never been good at using chisels or planes. I finally figured out that these tools are not "sharp" out of the package and need honing. I invested in good Norton waterstones and learned the art of hand sharpening and honing. Effective but tedious and tiresome. I ran into a fellow in HD that recommended the Mark II. I took his advice and am absolutely sold! This jig is accurate and easy to use. The results are amazing and repeatable. The weight is a plus in my book. It is hefty and solidly built. Once you figure out the best way to hold it it is comfortable to use. I spent six hours sharpening all my chisels and plane blades and the results are amazing. Redressing a blade takes only a few minutes because the jig is dead on accurate. This is a must have. It is well worth the price.
Bought this after reading reviews and hearing from others. Works fantastic! After reading about honing edges on sandpaper instead of stones, I gave it a try with the honing guide. I was able to get a mirror polish without once ripping the paper. Try it!
A must have
Every woodworker should have one of these. I got razor sharp tools with no experience sharpening.
would buy it again
finally can acquire the correct angle each time
It works great but...
If you have several chisels to sharpen, I would suggest wearing gloves to protect your hands. The numerous tightening and loosening of the knurl knobs can really chew into your thumb. But that aside, I would have given this tool 5 stars. I holds the angle perfectly, very easy to setup, and the micro-bevel feature is very nice.
Veritas MK II
I use this product in my stringed instrument business. There is nothing more frustrating when you're try to use a dull chisel, It does the job.

Sharpening chisels and plane blades
Great for western tools
I own a lot of sharpening equipment - stones, machines, etc. I use this guide and the skew jig for all my western chisels and plane blades - anything where the sides and faces are all parallel. If the sides aren't parallel, the registration guide doesn't work. If the front and back faces aren't parallel, as in a Japanese plane blade, the clamp bar doesn't hold that well. That said, this is my go-to guide for any plane or chisel wider than 1/8".
The roller bearings do tend to get dirtied up with slurry grit if you use it on water stones. Oil and clean them often.
High Quality Precision Tool
This is a high quality precision tool hands down. There's no guess work. Check the angle of the blade to be sharpened, set the registration jig, insert blade to the stop, sharpen/hone to your liking and... perfect results everytime. I would recommend this guide over any other that I've seen. It may cost a little more than other guides, but well worth the "VERITAS" quality. Made to last a long, long time.
