I'm having an issue using the honing guide with a blade from the veritas low angle block plane.
The blade is not rectangular across the entire length. Less than half of blade is a rectangle. The blade starts to angle and becomes narrower. I don't have a picture, but on LV site there is a picture of the toothed blade on the block plane page. The regular blade is shaped the same.

I can't attach/tighten the blade to the honing guide to sharpen at a 25 degree angle. Tried using the top and chisel part of the guide with no luck. I may not be attaching blade correctly. I've completed some of the modifications to the guide as recommended Swartz and others. Has anyone used this guide with this block plane?

Thanks Jerry for the info. I did try freehand, but rounded the edge. Used to have the veritas mkII, but gave up on stone sharpening for awhile and used the worksharp. Found that the MkII was not the best for some chisels. I think they have a different atttachment for chisels now.
