Guided Sharpening Systems
A sharp knife is one of the most important tools for professional chefs, home cooks, outdoorsmen, fishermen, hunters, and those in the tactical field alike. But over time and with use, all knives lose their edge, and can soon become more dangerous than useful. In fact, a dull knife is the most unsafe tool you can have. Therefore, keeping knives in a properly maintained condition is imperative.
But this is easier said than done. There are learning curves to learning how to sharpen and maintain your knives, and one can easily get discouraged if results are not achieved in a timely fashion. That’s where guided sharpening systems come into play. Not only do guided sharpening systems get you fast, expert level results, they are also great stepping stones to getting into the exciting world of freehand and mechanized sharpening.
There are several very reputable guided sharpening systems out there to consider. They are the Edge Pro (EP), KME Sharpener, Hapstone Sharpener, and Wicked Edge Precision Sharpener (WEPS). These systems produce good, fast results, and also offer a wide variety of accessory stones like Shapton Glass Stones and Chosera Stones, giving you plenty of edge options for different knives and tools.
Which one is the best? Well, that depends on your budget and personal preferences toward features like clamped vs. no clamped. But no matter which you decide is best for you, all four of these sharpening systems will get you great results, teach you the basics of sharpening, and can handle most chip repairs, profiling, and general maintenance.
