Blue Spruce chisels arrive in your shop with the sharpest possible edge, and we painstakingly treat the steel to produce the best edge retention possible. But the day will come when your chisels need to be sharpened, and the new Blue Spruce Honing Guide is the perfect way to meet that day head on.
The new Blue Spruce Honing Guide turns the traditional honing guide design upside down and clamps the chisel from above, rather than below. And, while most honing guides have the roller directly under the clamp, the Blue Spruce Honing Guide wheels are offset. The Honing Guide will fit chisels and plane blades from 1/8" to 1-1/2", while Blue Spruce Bench Chisels, Butt Chisels, Dovetail Chisels and Paring Chisels fit in the new Honing Guide like they were made for each other…because they were.
In addition to working with shorter blades, the Honing Guide has a smaller footprint on your bench stone. Whether you’re sharpening a butt chisel or our longest, widest paring chisel, you can use more of the stone for sharpening and less for supporting.
Simply clamp your chisel in the guide, adjust the bevel angle with the provided angle setting fixture and go to your bench stone. The synthetic rubber tires roll across your water or oil stone effortlessly, without causing the surface wear possible with metal rollers. With the new Blue Spruce Honing Guide, you’ll get the job done better, faster and more accurately than you can with freehand methods or many other sharpening guides.
The new Blue Spruce Honing Guide is precision machined from stainless steel and anodized aluminum so there’s nothing to rust, ever. The Honing Guide and angle setting fixture are sold as a set and are available in three colors, black, blue and clear anodized.
Just look at these features:
- Works perfectly with both short and full-length tools.
- Uses more of your bench stone for quicker sharpening.
- Precision angle setting fixture for fast, accurate and repeatable results.
