Detailed Description

Sharpening Kit for Plane Irons

The excellent 9-minute video featuring Lie-Nielsen's Deneb Puchalski describes a quick and reliable technique for achieving consistent sharp edges on any plane iron. In the video, he describes several items used in this simple technique:

1. Side clamping honing guide
2. Combination honing/polishing waterstone
3. Thin 6" ruler
4. Protractor
5. Camellia oil
6. Roll of 150-grit wet/dry sandpaper (for re-flattening waterstones)
7. Homemade angle setting jig

Our Sharpening Kit for Plane Irons contains one each of the first six items on the above list .

PLUS you can CLICK HERE to download for free, Lie-Nielsen's detailed plans to use in building your own homemade angle setting jig (as shown in the image above). PLEASE NOTE: The homemade jig itself is not included in this kit.

In the video, Deneb suggests using a 1000/8000 grit combination waterstone. We think jumping from 1000 grit honing to 8000 grit polishing is a rather big step so we include a 1000/6000 waterstone in our set. You can be successful honing at 1000 grit and then follow polishing at 6000 grit. The sharpening will go a little faster, yet still produce an excellent polished edge and in our opinion, is just as effective for getting a great edge on your plane irons.
