Designed to produce consistent, controllable results on blades up to a width of 1 inch, the Richard Kell No. 1 honing guide is a really cleverly engineered piece of kit. A pair of polycarbonate washers grip the blade from the sides whilst the back of the blade registers against a pair of stainless steel rods. This unique arrangement uses the correct face of the tool as the datum for the bevel angle and allows tapered blades such as those found on Japanese chisels to be honed accurately.
The Ertalyte rollers are machined in pairs and run on brass bobbins, selectively assembled in pairs to within a tolerance of one third of a thou.
All of Richard Kell's honing guides come with a copy of his wonderfully clear set of handwritten instructions, complete with neatly drawn diagrams, that leave you in no doubt that your honing guide was made by a man for whom precision is as essential as breathing.
Capacity: 0 to 1 inch width.

Beautiful bit of kit
What a beautifully made little tool. A pleasure to use and very effective. Highly recommended
Excellent Guide and Excellent Service
Really well made honing guide which is very robust and simple to use with clear instructions. I have the feeling that will last me for a very long time. Quick and well packed delivery from Workshop Heaven.
Do your chisels justice with one of these
If you've invested in decent chisels then this is well worthwhile to keep them working at their best.
