Home in Versus Hone in

Alison from New York asked me to resolve a workplace argument.
Which of the following is correct? "I was particularly impressed how John was able to sift through thousands of pages of documents and [home/hone] in on the relevant material."

The correct wording is to "home in" on something. Think of a homing pigeon homing in on its destination. (To hone something means to sharpen it.)
