    My wife bought me this system for Christmas...and I must say it works pretty damn good. Now, every knife, pair of scissors, axe, shovel blade, ...anything that has an edge ...is now razor sharp !!


    The Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener uses flexible abrasive belts, and is able to sharpen not just straight bladed knives, but also curved knives, tanto blades, filet knives, serrated knives, gut hooks and virtually any other shape of knife blade. Using precision angle sharpening guides to ensure that you get the proper angle every time...there are two guides included: a 50° guide for hunting and outdoor knives (25° per bevel) and a 40° guide for thinner blades and kitchen knives (20° per bevel).

    Be careful!!! Practice with a couple of throw-away knives first.


    Things I have learned the hard way:

    1. If you pull the tip all the way through the sharpening action (like you would the rest of the blade), the tip is removed!
    2. If you like a very distinct transition between the two blade angles on a Tanto designed knife, you must carefully stop before the end of the main edge and then re-start on the secondary edge. If you do not, you will end up with a drop point.
    3. Do not apply hardly any pressure! This thing will eat through a blade in no time flat.
    4. Be careful about allowing the blade to linger near the hilt or handle before making the stroke. If you do, you will end up with an unwanted re-curve.
