Found that the honing guide that I use for plane blades and chisels doesn’t work on stokeshave blades. The blade from my Stanley no. 151 is too short to get the required 25° angle. Luckily, I had a short piece of steel flat bar with a hole drilled earlier at the right place. I cut it to make a table saw splitter, but ended up using another piece.

The blade gave nice shavings when I learned what the right blade depth was…
