Sharpening

Our flagship product!

Alisam's "Sharpening Sled ™"

The easiest, fastest, most precise way to hand sharpen/hone your chisels, handplane and scraper plane blades! *

Made of sturdy anodized aluminum.

Alisam Sharpening Sleds

Four easy steps:

  1. Loosen black handles and set your desired bevel angle using the precise, laser engraved index marks. Tighten handles.
  2. Place the guide over your sharpening stone.
  3. Insert blade, push alignment "slide" up against the side of the blade to ensure a square edge.
  4. Tighten brass toggle foot clamp to secure blade and away you go!

The front wheels are able to move up and down about .010", allowing for continued blade contact with the stone, as blade material is removed by the honing process.

quotation Thanks for making a device that really works! Don't know what's so hard about it but the rest of them I have tried can't hold the blade straight or secure. Thanks again for my #SS2. It really works."

T.J., Roseville, MN

quotation A very nice design which solves the problems of a honing jig in an elegant fashion. You should be more widely known."
