Off topic Knife sharpening
« on: January 24, 2013, 12:25:28 PM »
For decades ,i have been nearly obsessed with sharpening knives and tools .
I have purchased different systems from wet stones,tri-angle, pocket systems etc .

Finally I found one that's perfect !
It is an electric belt machine with angle guides for precise sharpening ,it is quick and inexpensive .(for what it does)

It is called Work Sharp and I bought it from Cabellas . As with all Cabellas merchandise it has a money back guarentee .

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Can you give us the name of the product? Your link just goes to a search results page with about 20 different products on it.

Work Sharp, it's the 2nd one on the link. I have this product as well. It is expensive but worth it. You can sharpen a shovel with it as well.

I had been thinking about one of those, but I really like my Lansky rods. Then again Fred Flintstone liked dinosaurs too.

I'm a fan of the Accu-sharp and a steel. Although, I did like the video.

Work Sharp gets good reviews on the woodworking forums.

Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

Dad used to sharpen his knives on the same stones and strop that he used for his chisels, and his chisels would draw blood if you picked up the wrong end. (I only did that once.) So if the woodworkers like it that says a lot to me. Thanks!
