Minimum blade length 160mm
This new knife jig is developed especially for long and flexible knives, e.g. filleting knives. Its larger width, 140 mm (5½”), stabilizes a long and thin blade and the jig copes with blades longer than 160 mm (6¼”).
This jig is made especially for long and thin knives. It works in the same way as the SVM-45 jig but it is wider and therefore gives more support to long and thin blades.
The jig comprises an adjustable clamp (1) for holding knives of any thickness and an adjustable stop (2). You adjust the jig to the knife thickness with the screw (3). You lock the tool by tightening the knob (4).
The jig rests on the Universal Support. The exact edge angle is set by rotating the stop or with the Micro Adjust on the Universal Support. The Universal Support is placed vertically for grinding towards the edge.
