Carbide sharpeners are fast, highly effective, go anywhere sharpening tools designed to give you a fresh cutting edge in seconds. Dead easy to use, no oil or water is required and they last indefinitely.
Inset with carefully profiled blocks of sharp, extremely hard, carbide that literally slice tiny shavings of steel off each side of the blunt edge to produce a fresh one. The edge is then deburred and refined with the other side of the tool.,/p>
Ideal for kitchen knives, axes, billhooks, scissors and surprisingly effective for touching up HSS planer / thicknesser knives between regrindings.
