Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

Description

This ergonomic and innovative honing guide is designed to sharpen Japanese planes, Japanese chisels and western styles blades including concave, convex and older hand forged shapes.

The jig uses a single point of retention to hold plane blades from 42mm to 70mm wide and chisels from 3mm to 42mm wide. The single screw holds the tool securely and allows it the tool to self-align to the sharpening stone. 

The unique design means that tools like Japanese plane blades that have tapered sides and cannot be aligned with other honing guides can be micro adjusted to ensure a perfectly square bevel.

Please note that the body is cast in Taiwan. The complete honing guide is assembled in Japan.

Great bit of gear

I use the honing guide to sharpen chisels for my Kumiko projects.
Easy to set up and allows sharpening angles to be accurately maintained. It works as I expected.

JP Honing Guide

Much as expected with very good performance.

I have been looking for a means of sharpening JP type blades for a while.

However, one serious problem lies with the thumbscrew mechanism to tighten the blade to the guide. The rotational movement of the pressure pad which theoretically allows for independent movement of the pad from the tightening screw never the less imparts a degree of rotation to the blade which has been fitted to the guide. As the guide does not have a means of fixing the blade at 90 degrees once the blade is fitted, it tends to drift from 90 degrees as the sharpening commences, or even before sharpening has started.

An obvious improvement would be to replace the screw pad with a cam lock mechanism to ensure the alignment of the blade; such that once the blade is fitted to the sharpener, the alignment is maintained and not distorted when the screw is tightened. This is particularly evident when sharpening narrow chisels.

Another improvement would be some means of ensuring the blade is set at 90 degrees to the jigs alignment. This would obviously need to allow for variations in the fitted blades width.

Otherwise an excellent device.
