Veritas MkII Honing Guide + Camber Roller
The main feature of the Veritas Mk.II is its blade registration system squaring and setting the blade in one easy step. The Mk.II Guide has three bevel angle range configurations: a high angle (25° to 54° in seven increments), standard (15° to 40° in six increments), and a third for back bevels. The registration jig slides onto the guide body, centering and squaring the blade using an integral fence. The clamping mechanism registers on the face of the blade and is designed to accept flat and tapered blades, as well as blades with irregular geometry. The Mk.II features a three-position eccentric roller allowing a micro-bevel to be honed quickly and accurately after only a simple turn of a knob. The 50mm wide roller is stable for even the narrowest of blades. The guide can easily accommodate chisels or blades from 6 to 72mm wide and up to 13mm thick including spokeshave blades. Sharpening stone not included.

The Camber Roller is an attachment specifically designed for use with the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide. When planing on large, flat surfaces, it is often desirable to hone a slight curve, or camber, into the edge of the blade. The Veritas Camber Roller Assembly has a barrel-shaped roller that allows limited rocking, whilst still maintaining an accurate and consistent bevel angle. Simply replace the standard roller assembly with the camber assembly and sharpen. The blade is still set using the registration jig, and the camber roller includes the standard eccentric system allowing micro-bevels to be honed.
