It may be stating the obvious, but at some point the blades of the Veritas miniature tools will require sharpening and honing. This 1/3 scale version of the Veritas Mk1 honing guide is a natural extension to the Veritas miniature tool collection. This fully functional honing guide will help keep the miniature blades in peak condition.
The guide consists of a honing guide and an angle jig. The honing guide has a die-cast aluminium body that rides on a brass roller and accepts blades up to 19mm wide. The stainless steel clamping knob holds the blade against a pad in the guide. The angle setting jig has a 63mm long base and a 5-sided wheel that you can turn to a selected facet. You can use it to set your blade angle to one of the 5 most common bevel angles (15°, 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°). With the blade loosely held in the honing guide, simply roll the guide up to the wheel and clamp the blade. You can return to exactly the same angle each time you want to hone a blade, ensuring accuracy and reducing sharpening time. In addition, you can use this guide for virtually any small blade in cases where a full size guide proves too clumsy. It works well with narrow plough plane and similar blades.
