Born in the Northern suburbs of Perth Australia, Creators Mark and Bob came up with the genius idea of a guided sharpening system that was designed for use with freehand sharpening stones.
The simple but thought-out design consists of the main threaded rod, which is made from aircraft grade aluminium, in one end of the rod there is a hardened fixed ball bearing that provides a friction free surface for the rod to glide on.
The main clamping body has beautifully CNC machined logo on the side, at the front of the system is the unique jaw design that uses a cam locking mechanism that is similar to a quick release bike wheel.
The final part of the puzzle is the locking nut, the cog shaped nut is ergonomic and easy to use.
Wind in the threaded rod from the bottom of the main unit body, about halfway as a starting point.
Wind down the lock nut from the top side of the unit so it looks like the below image.
Here is a video showing our first look at the Knifemate
Our answer is Yes!
By adding the separate scissor attachment you can now sharpen most scissor varieties.
As shown in our instructional video below.
