Richard Kell Honing Guides

Richard Kell Honing Guides

Richard Kell is an independent toolmaker from Northumberland; his honing guides are as brilliantly designed as they are beautifully made and offer unmatched levels of precision and versatility.

The components are individually manufactured to tolerances of a thousandth of an inch and then critical ones are matched in closest matching pairs within that tolerance.

We don't stock any other honing guides purely because these are so much better than anything else on the market.
