I’ve only started woodworking this year, so my chisel game is on par with t-ball. Knowing my big box chisels needed sharpening out of the box, they’re now scary sharp in no time thanks to this jig.
With it's long roller and alignment guides, this sharpening jig has made it easier to sharpen my plane blades and chisels. I now enjoy sharpening them.
I have enjoyed using my sharpening jig. I have used others in the past that pinch from the sides, but they were all but useless for my 1/4" and 1/8" chisels. This jig clamps the entire chisel or plane iron on the wide flat portion, which I have found to be more stable and it handles my widest chisel or plane iron to my smallest without any issues. The only chisels I can't use this jig for are my 3 Narex beveled dovetail chisels because the blade bodies are triangular and do not have a flat shape. This product safely and securely holds 95% of my chisels and 100% of my plane irons. I am super pleased with it.
Easier to balance as you sharpen. . Starting to like K& M tools more and more.
