The KME Axe sharpener, with magnetic base is a unit that was specifically designed to sharpen axes. The magnetic base snaps firmly onto the axe after which you can determine the desired angle. The base can be rotated to make sure you can also easily sharpen the other side of the axe. You can even sharpen axes with a convex grind with this base. For it you should use the KME Convex Guide Rod
NOTE: here it only concerns the magnetic base and not the rest of the KME Axe Sharpener. This base is mostly practical for those who already own a KME Precision Knife Sharpening System, Diamond Stone Kit or a KME Precision Knife Sharpening System, R.P.S.H. Combo Kit and the necessary accessories.
