Description

Our hugely popular sloyd Jig- designed by Hewn and Hone specifically for putting an accurate, repeatable hollow grind on smaller sloyd type blades using a wetstone grinder, the jig body is made from solid steel to maintain accurate alignment of the jaws, the disc is moved along the steel rod to provide adjustment for different bevel angles. Allen key and basic instructions provided but please see this video for comprehensive details.

This jig will fit most sloyd blades, and has been tested extensively on the Mora 106 and 120, it works by gripping on the flats of the blade behind the bevels-  6mm of flat measured at a distance of 30mm  from the handle of the knife ( 1/4″ at 1 1/4″)  is the narrowest that this jig will safely hold,  When you are familiar with the jig it should be possible to fit and grind a narrower blade. If you have any concerns as to whether your blade will fit please ask.

    Can you do a video of it in use?

    Hi,
    Any idea of what I am doing wrong when the scratch patterns on one side of the blade is significantly different from the other side even though it’s a new mora 106 blade and the knife was mounted in the jig according to all instructions?

    When should we expect this back in stock?

    • Hewn & Hone Team says:

      Unfortunately, the company that manufactures these for us is currently closed due to Covid, We hope to have some in July.

    I don’t use Insrtagram or any other “social” media account, is there a way you can let me know when the jigs are in stock?

    • Hewn & Hone Team says:

      Hi Alastair,
      This is a good point, I’ll make sure I put announcements in the blog as well, if you sign up for it you will be notified any new posts come in

        I’ve looked everywhere I can think of, but I can’t find a way to sign up for the blog. What have I missed?

    I was wondering what the results would be if this jig was used on a smaller tormek T-4 wheel which is 200mm (7.87 inches)

    In the video I see the machine used has a 10 inch wheel. Will I get the same results using the jig on my smaller grind wheel?

    Thanks so much!

      Hi Katie,
      This jig has been used successfully by many customers with the smaller wheel, it will work in the same way. The hollow will be deeper though which means, it will last a bit longer before it is sharpened out, however being deeper it will make the edge slightly more fragile straight after grinding. The smaller diameter wheel will also give you slightly more clearance when grinding so you are less likely to inadvertently grind the lips on the jig.

        Thanks for getting back to me. I’ve ground six knives multiple times with this setup but it seems like no matter what I do, my edges roll almost instantly after adding a flat over the hollow grind. I’m carving green basswood (lime) which is super soft and it leaves marks on the woods surface. I’ve sharpened them further with my dmt stones to see if that would help and I end up almost removing the hollow grind after a couple sessions to get the edges from rolling over. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I love how easy the jig is but I’m spending so much time trying to remedy the fragile edge. Thanks again!
