The Spyderco Sharpmaker is one of our favorite recommendations for folks who are looking for an easy way to sharpen their blades. I have given several as wedding gifts over the years and one of them lives in my kitchen as well. We’ve even got one here at our office that we all use to keep our edges in tip-top shape when needed. In this guide, we will break down all the features of the Tri-Angle Sharpmaker and show you, step by step, how to get the most out of this great product.
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. Check out this awesome new sharpener at www.knifecenter.com.

Master Grade Commercial Grade Sharpening System
This system is extraordinary. It has a high powered motor and replaceable sanding wheels with three different grits. If you really want to rework the edges on your knives, this system will do it with expert results. The sets that we sell include the base unit with standard cover, a replacement cover with wider access for coarse grit reshaping, the fine grit wheels mounted on the unit, and replacement medium and coarse grit wheels.
We like this unit but it is geared for commercial kitchens and not fine cutlery. If you are using it for your fine cutlery, use extreme caution that you don’t remove too much metal with each sharpening or your knives won’t last for the generations they were built for!
Here is the general sales material for this product: Continue Reading
