Woodcarving Carving Sets Full Size Carving Tools Sculpture Tools Palm Carving Tools Carving Knives Carving Accessories Power Carving Tools Burrs & Accessories Watching this video, I really got thinking about whether I was getting a good edge on my knives or not — I suspected not. In the video a bunch of sharpeners are tested to see how sharp they are right after sharpening and how well each retains the edge after a very consistent amount of wear is put on each blade. Guided angle sharpeners in a lot of cases are glorified jigs, a device that you mount the knife in and can then apply an accurate angle on a stone to the edge bevel of the blade to create a consistent edge. Obviously there are many ways to skin a cat, and knife sharpeners vary wildly in construction, design and price. One commonality all sharpeners have – they start at a coarse (low grit) abrasive to remove metal the fastest and set the profile of the edge, and gradually progress to higher grit (fine) abrasives to refine that edge as accurately as possible, including leveling out the burr that develops when you sharpen one side at a time.

An Edge Pro professional sharpener system is the ideal way to get lasting results. Try this professional knife sharpener today. I now remember what it felt like when I had the time (before kids) to only use water stones. Except now, the Apex is better than those and just way easier and faster. For the price and the results, I don’t think you can beat this sharpener. Ideally the angle would not be so shallow near the tip, but a lot of that was because of the past damage. Even so, that’s a thin tip and does worry me. I doubt I can get the profile correct on this knife without making the blade a decent bit shorter.

How I Sharpen Now

That wraps up our list of the best sharpeners on the market for knife enthusiasts. Did I miss your favorite sharpener? Get in touch. The Edge Pro Apex 1 knife sharpener kit is a patented wet stone sharpening system that will sharpen any size or shape blade (up to 3 ½" wide), including serrated knives. Knives can be sharpened at exactly the same angle every time, making re-sharpening so fast you will never work with a dull blade again. The Edge Pro Apex stones in our wet stone sharpening kits have been custom formulated to free you from messy, gummed-up oil stones. They last a long time and are inexpensive to replace. The Apex Model Edge Pro Sharpening System will remove far less metal than electric sharpeners or grinders, eliminating wavy edges and adding to the life and performance of your knives. Edge Pro knife sharpening system offers two sharpener variants, The Edge Pro Apex and the Pro models. Here’s the path I take now to maintaining a sharp knife, which will remain sharp for a very long time:

The Best Knife Sharpener For Your Money The Best Knife Sharpener For Your Money

The Ken Onion Edition is a variant of the standard Work Sharp electric power knife sharpener, developed with input by the man himself – surely you’re familiar – to work specifically on knives.Totally different from the other sharpeners on this list, the Tormek T-4 is more a piece of industrial equipment and less a hobbyist sharpener. The T-4 uses an 8” Aluminum Oxide sharpening stone that rotates on a 120w/230V electric motor. The bottom of the stone rests in a water trough that keeps the edge of the stone lubricated while it’s turning, which both cleans the stone and cools the item being sharpened (avoiding overheating it and ruining the tempering.) The standard stone with the Tormek is approximately 220 grit; using the stone grading tool (including) smooths it out to around 1000 grit for fine finishing. Once you’ve got a clean edge grind, use the built in leather strop wheel to straighten out the burr, and you’ve got a scary sharp knife.

Interestingly it holds a pretty decent edge, but I have to imagine the tip is decently fragile. Edge Pro are renowned for their Diamond Matrix sharpening stone series that are mounted to high quality CNC machined aluminium blanks.Woodturning Turning Sets Bowl Gouges Spindle Gouges Scrapers Skew Chisels Parting Tools Beading Tools Sovereign Micro Tools More Woodturning As I have been using the Apex, I have fallen in love with it. It is fast and easy to use. I have gotten to the point where I am starting to really put some wear on the stones themselves. All of my newer knives I have managed to maintain the factory angle for the most part but add a mirror finish to each blade. The Edge Pro Knife Sharpening system is one of the first guided sharpening systems / fixed angle knife sharpeners and the Edge Pro Professional kit has become a popular sharpener for beginners and experts, we advise against knife sharpener electric systems.
