Work sharp???????????
« on: March 18, 2021, 06:24:06 PM »
I know a lot of you guys are using replaceable blades.
Have any of you used that work sharp system.
Some of my knives got very sharp and a few are down right scary sharp .Not sure if it's the type of metal or what.
Seems like some of my older buck knives got scary sharp with just a few passes.
I was kinda not impressed at first,but as I use it more ,it's turned as few knife right around.
Before I would sit for hours with a stone.

I use it on my less expensive knives and kitchen knives and it's awesome.  I do my Benchmade and other more expensive knives with a stone still.

I've always used a stone until Christmas this year.
I'm really impressed with it .Maybe not so much when I buy more belts down the road.

I use the ken onion work sharp, it takes a larger belt 3/4 x 12"

https://www.redlabelabrasives.com/products/34-x-12-inch-knife-sharpener-sanding-belts

The regular work sharp uses a different belt, think its 1/2" x 12" or so, do your researching


I buy the assortment, then when I got lots of spare ultra fine or 8p grit but lack 300-800  grit I order a bunch of those.

Yup, ken onion for me too though I do carry the worksharp field sharpener in every pack and my truck. I shoot 2 blade single bevel broadheads and love sharpening them on there too! Though never pull the tip of a blade off the belt. Nice pointy tip rounds over real quick I found out my first time using it.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

I love my ken onion worksharp.  It's magic on not-super-duper-hard steels.  On my nice chef's knife I typically use a stone because for whatever reason (I have only a very cursory knowledge of metallurgy) the worksharp takes forever to get a good edge on my chef's knife and the stone makes quick work of it. 

Between the work sharp, classic stone, and religious use of my honing steel, life is good  :tup:

I love my ken onion work sharp and use it for all of my knives.  Gonna buy some of the off brand belts as I'm sure they will work great for good cost savings.
