Electric Knife Sharpner


Recommended Posts

I use on occasion a Work Sharp sharpener to bring an edge back or to reprofile. The great thing about it is that it is basically a mini belt sander. The work sharp can be used for many different types of blades too. You can order different grit belts to finish up your blade to a polished edge, or use a ceramic honing rod to finish off.

Ed I caught a few minutes of the infomercial on the worksharp sharpener yesterday. So it really is a good tool?


I know this is about sharpening, but figured I'd also mention that I've switched over to Havalon knives and don't have to sharpen anything anymore. Nothing is sharper than a scalpel blade and I can switch blades whenever it's getting dull.


I'll be using it on my elk hunt, I've used it for bears, deer, foxes, skinning, gutting, quartering, taxidermy, etc. The 60XT  and 22XT blades are tough enough to do most anything.



“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

Hey Matty,

I love the thing for reprofiling an edge after heavy use. It can give you a better than factory edge with very little practice. But I love stroping a blade with a little green compound for a very fine hair popping edge after a little field use. It pleases me to bring an edge back to life...lol


I think your choice is practical for your trip, but I would still pack a good strong fixed blade or folder. Love Heavy Metal.
