Richard Kell No.2 Honing Guide with Large Rollers

Although a touch less nimble than the Richard Kell No.1 honing guide on narrower blades, the capacity of the Richard Kell No.2 to accept blades up to a width of 2-5/8 inch has made it a bestseller. A pair of large radius 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 UHMWPE 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 2-5/8 inch width.

A work of art
I must say, as a beginner, it surprised me how easy and accurate it is, I tested it with a chisel that I previously botched/ruined while trying to hand sharpen it (I thought I was Paul Sellers) and it helped me restore it to its former glory with ease!

The cost is worth it considering the fact that this is a one man shop/operation and the quality and low tolerances of the build.

Overall, highly recommended.
