Did you know there's a Hall of Fame for knife makers? Well there is. And Ken Onion is in it. And when he's not fulfilling his Hall of Fame knife-making duties, he's collaborating with Work Sharp to design this Knife & Tool Sharpener. Marketed for its precision, repeatability, and simplicity of use, the Work Sharp device wants to hone to perfection the blades of every knife you own. And also all of your light-duty Daddy-o tools. Plus your favorite pair of scissors to run around the house with.
The sharpener comes with a precision sharpening guide adjustable from 15 to 30 degrees in 1-degree increments. Its 3/4" x 12" flexible abrasive belts--the same as those the Ken Onions of blade masters use--can be set to variable speeds between 1200 SFM and 2800 SFM for sharpening knives ranging from straight-bladed pocket and hunting knives to serrated knives to kitchen knives. Work Sharp includes 5 belts in its package: a P120 Extra Coarse; an X65 Coarse; an X22 Medium; an X4 Fine; and a 6000 Extra Fine.
Tools the sharpener can tackle include shovels, pruners, and axes.
