Manual pocket sharpeners have met their match with the new Guided Field Sharpener from Work Sharp. Previously limited to a hand held belt sharpening system, Work Sharp has branched out this year to add a variety of products to quickly get a great edge on your tools. The new field sharpener includes two diamond plates (one coarse, one fine) which are held in place by a pair of strong magnets but can easily be removed for cleaning. The large ceramic rod allows one to touch up not only knives but it has a groove cut in for fish hooks that can be accessed by rotating the red knob on the end. Another feature you don’t see on many hand held sharpeners is the leather strop opposite the ceramic rods. Stropping a readily sharp blade polishes up the edge by straightening out the burr which not only makes for a sharper edge but also a more durable one. The Guided Field Sharpener is a very easy to use tool (set up for both 20° and 25° edge angless) and can sharpen almost anything you throw on it.
