Work Sharp


The Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener is the first knife sharpener designed to sharpen every knife you own. Using flexible abrasive belts, the sharpener 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. The Knife & Tool Sharpener uses precision angle sharpening guides to ensure that you get the proper angle every time. Two guides are 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). Professional knife makers use flexible belts to put a razor sharp edge on their blades, and now you can have the same technology at home to use any time your knives get dull. You may already have other sharpening methods, but never before has a knife sharpener been able to quickly and easily sharpen this broad range of knives to such extremely sharp results.

The Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener is also able to sharpen other common tools including scissors, axes and hatchets, mower blades, garden shears, shovels, and most any tool with a blade. The versatility of the Knife & Tool Sharpener makes it an invaluable tool for keeping all your blades in razor sharp condition and ready whenever you need them.

Watch your fingers!!!

Review Summary

I bought this with a gift card for my Birthday rather than the attachment for the Worksharp that I also own. Wow! Does this thing sharpen or what? After finishing sharpening my wife's prized Wusthof's to a honed razor edge I started rummaging through drawers looking for things to sharpen. This thing is addictive. It turns cheap knives and scissors in to highly efficient cutting tools. I hear myself constantly warning my familty to watch their fingers on the knives they are that sharp.
Awesome. One small flaw is in the guides. You are sharpening against a belt and draw the knife through a plastic guide. As the knife sharpens it tends to cut into the plastic guide. I hope replacements are cheap!
