Help.. Can't remember the name of the sharpener




I'm trying to look up some info on the knife sharpener that holds the EDGE vertical and it uses two stones, one on each side of the blade, at the same time. I rember seeing an instructional video on it once but can't dig it up again.

ETA- It's a guide rod and clamp style.

Thanks for the help.

sharpener

Spydeco has a sharpener that has 2 sticks, or stones, verticle at angles. The one I have has a total of 4 sticks. Does a great job when you are patient.

Both sides at once I would say Wicked Edge:

Yep, thats it, Wicked Edge. You guys are good. Thanks. Now I know what to put in the search engines.

I have used a Lansky for probably 12 years and really don't have any complaints. I've skinned a lot of coons and squirrels and cleaned a lot of catfish with knives sharpened on it. I've just started looking around at getting a new set up.

I think I've narrowed it down to a KME or Wicked edge, maybe another Lansky with diamond stones this time.

Thanks again.

+1.. Really like the edge this sharpener put on. Doesn't take really long either.

Do you guys use a strop on your knives? While watching this video I noticed that he finishes with strop or leather like they do with the old fashion razors.

I just picked up a strop to learn how to use. People seem to think they are the perfect thing for finishing a blade or even maintaining...

Please post back after you've given it a try. Really interested in knowing if it makes a difference. I'm sure some will say yes and other will say no but since your just learning too.. :-)

I have been using the WE for a few months now. I have just recently started to use the strops and they really make a big difference. I can touch up and mirror an edge within seconds almost.

Here are a few things I’ve learned the hard way:

Use your log book! The system comes with a log book in the back of the manual, use it. It is there so that you can easily reset the system when using it to sharpen multiple blades. Otherwise you will probably have to re-profile the edge every time you use it which is not a good thing. Unless have a great memory of course.

Use a marker to coat your edge before you start. It helps verify that you have your angles set properly. I can explain this in greater detail if needed.
When applying the compound to your strops don’t apply too much. A little of the compound will go a LONG way. One application to the strops will be good for 50-70 knives.

Good luck all

Spyderco

I like the Spyderco. Very easy, your choice of bevel angle. Adding ceramic triangles to the basic set and a diamond block to begin with gives you everything you need.
