The Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharpmaker will sharpen all your kitchen knives, outdoor hunting knives, scissors, chisels, and axes.
The Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharpmaker system includes two sets of high alumina ceramic stones: a pair of medium-grit (brown) stones for aggressive sharpening and a set of fine (white) stones for professional-grade finishing. A set of Aluminium safety rods protects your hands while sharpening and all components will snap into the self-contained ABS plastic base and lid for easy storage with the option to upgrade to other stone varieties including CBN and Diamond rods.
Ceramic stones are like glass and will break if dropped - handle carefully.
The system uses triangular shaped industrial sapphire sticks that are almost as hard as diamond for sharpening plain edges on the flat sides and Serrations on the corners.
The main key to sharpening any cutting tool is removing the steel at the edge while maintaining a consistent angle between the blade and the stone.
Spyderco’s Tri-Angle Sharpmaker takes the guesswork out of this process and enables anyone to sharpen a knife effectively with just a few minutes practice. Its durable ABS plastic base contains keyed holes that accurately set the stones sharpening angles at a 30° (15° per side) or 40° (20° per side) for sharpening knives.
Simply keep the axis of your knife’s blade vertical and draw the edge down and along each stone to sharpen. It’s that simple. For serrated blades, use the rounded edges of the stones and a slightly looser grip to allow the stone to flow into the recesses of each serration. The system requires no water or special sharpening oils, use it completely dry.
Every Sharpmaker comes complete with a detailed instruction book and DVD that guides you step by step through the process of sharpening knives, scissors, and many other edged tools.
