Work Sharp Sharpeners

Even the most expensive knives made of the best of premium steels will go dull eventually, especially with the more rote everyday utility tasks including cutting through paper and cardboard. And the more premium the steel is, the harder it is to sharpen without specialized tools and knowhow. That’s where Work Sharp comes in with their full range of knife sharpeners that make it easy to maintain the edge on your blades every time, just like you sent them in to a professional.

Take the Work Sharp Precision Adjust Elite for example, which has everything you need to make an insanely-sharp edge on any of your pocket knives even if you have no prior experience. As its name implies you can adjust the angle of the abrasive rods to match the original cutting edge of your blade. With a full range of abrasive grits from 220 to 800 diamond you can hone the edge and fix chips in the blade with ease.

And because the angle is held consistently by the design of the Precision Adjust Elite, you can ensure the whole blade has the same uniform sharp edge. There’s even a fine ceramic rod made to handle knives with serrations, something much harder to maintain using traditional sharpening methods. And for a limited time in November, Work Sharp is offering the Pocket Knife Sharpener in a limited edition Hunter Orange color with the purchase of a Precision Adjust Elite. It's a diamond plate and ceramic rod sharpener with angle guides in a limited colorway, and provides an excellent solution for in field touch-ups.

Another option is the Ken Onion Edition Knife and Tool Sharpener, which can sharpen everything from a fine scalpel up to a lawn mower blade. Designed in collaboration with renowned knifemaker Ken Onion, this mechanical sharpener uses flexible abrasive belts and an angle holder that lets you select between 15 and 30 degrees to match your blade. Aside from the ease of use and flexibility of the design, the Ken Onion Edition Knife and Tool Sharpener is especially useful if you have special grinds on your blade.

You can also use the system on knives with full or partial serrations without too much fuss, especially if you add the Blade Grinding Attachment (pictured above) for added control and surface area. The standard Ken Onion Edition comes with 5 belts ranging from an ultra-coarse 120 grit for reprofiling and fixing broken blades to a 6000 grit belt that lets you apply a mirror polish on your blade.

But if you prefer the more traditional stone sharpening method for maintaining your tools, make sure to check out Work Sharp’s Benchstone Knife Sharpener. It features three stones in one, with angle guides to help you achieve a consistent edge across your blade as you run it across the stones. It also features Work Sharp’s Pivot-Response technology, which means the abrasive material follows the curve of your blade, maintaining consistent contact despite variations in your movements that would throw off the edge on less forgiving traditional stones.

Whatever you choose, it’s important to plan for maintaining your knife. The worst thing that can happen is that you knife is too dull to do what you need it to do, especially in an emergency situation. And even when you’re doing something less critical, a dull blade can lead to injuries because it’ll slip and yet still be sharp enough to hurt you when you least expect it. A sharp knife is a safe knife, keep your knives safe with Work Sharp’s sharpening solutions. Click the links below to look at all they have to offer start building your maintenance system today.
