Combine buttermilk and honey in a bowl.
Sift the flours with baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir about 2/3 of the flour mixture into the buttermilk. Slowly mix in the melted butter. Lightly stir in remaining flour. Add currants.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead dough gently for a few minutes. Divide into three equal sections. Flatten dough to form thick rounds about 4 to 5 inches in diameter. With a sharp knife, cut the rounds into 4 wedges each.
Place scones 1/2 inch apart on a buttered cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter and preserves.
