I use the Veritas guide too. I just don't do as well without it. Diamond plate, sandpaper on glass. Push and pull.

I would also like to add. If your chisels are economy models, best off if you at least when you do your first sharpen and hone. Check the back for flatness. Some are curved enough to give you problems and would need more than the first inch flattened.

I strop. I forgot to add that.

Don't have any idea what the proper name might be, BUT. . .
if you turn it over, it looks like a round-nose, wood turning, lathe tool. Approx 60 degree bevel. I have tuned up a few of those over the past couple of years.
It doesn't have the right socket for a turning tool. It just looks like someone was picking ice and concrete with it. It's still a keeper. It's been struck pretty hard but it's also made to be struck. If it were mine I would follow the instructions and restore it. Yak with the hand tool guys. Many in that section can tell you exactly what it is.
