Dad been a little “dull” lately? Maybe it’s time to “whet” his appetite for sharpening. We are really “keen” on this new Belgian Blue Whetstone from Boker. At a grit of 5000, it is a perfect companion for their yellow Ardennes stone. It does not require oil, and it is a pleasure to use. A gift sure to “edge” out anything else your Dad might get for Father’s day this year!

SOG Countertop Sharpener
A classy new offering from SOG Knives. This carbide tip sharpener is a snap to set up. The suction cup system and small size make it a real natural for a kitchen or anywhere. This second generation model sits up about 3/4″ higher than the first generation. This should make the sharpening easier. It’s small, so will store easily and suts up in a quick motion and then will effectively dress up a blade quickly. We’re not sure if SOG will offer replacement carbide tips, but the ones supplied should last a long time and these are very reasonably priced.

Kershaw Auto-Tek Retractable Diamond Knife Sharpener 8″ Overall
Kershaw Knives releases a very cool sharpener. This is just cool. The diamond sharpener has a OTF switchblade mechanism so it shoots out to extend and then, the mechanism allows it to automatically retract again. This Kershaw Product is sort of like the Benchmade Infidel, but with a sharpener instead of a blade and for $14.95 instead of $300! They are nice to have, effective sharpeners and always a crowd pleaser. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com

Norton Rolling Wheel Knife Sharpener
This is a great product! 1 7/8″ diameter. Hand-held rolling wheel knife sharpener has two slots with proper built-in angle to sharpen each side of the blade. No lubricants needed. Compact and easy to use. Made in Brazil.
We have tried this little item around the warehouse here at the KnifeCenter- and we like it! It does a reasonable job of quickly setting the angle on both sides of a blade. Use it gingerly and try to work the entire edge and carefully keep it lodged in the groove to keep the angle consistent. One of the nice features is that it doesn’t mess up the sides of the blades with scratches and just works on the sharpened bevel. Generally we follow it with a quick stropping- just drag the blade pretty much flat on some leather or even canvas or blue jean material to take the extra steel off the edge on both sides.

CarBee-Sharp Multi-Head Pocket Carbide Sharpener
The Carbee-Sharp Pocket Sharpener is a great and small pocket sharpener from ARNO. Arno is a major tool manufacturer in France and they have produced this amazing sharpener (designed by an American!) that is effective and affordable. There are no angle guides, however, and you will have to approximate the angle but it works well for a quick edge. Here is the product description: Full Story
