Honing Guide: For sharpening plane blades, I wanted a honing guide that has the minimum of adjustments, and is quick to use. This one can be simple because it is for plane blades and nothing else. For different angles, one would keep on hand different guides with different built-in angles.
Full-size maquette: polystyrene, wood, brass, steel, paint
The honing guide has a matching base into which it fits.
There is a stop in the base that sets the blade extension. This makes for consistent angles from one sharpening to the next.
This guide is made to hone a 25 degree bevel.
Flip the guide over to hone a 5 degree back bevel.
