Razor Edge Knife Sharpening System
We all need sharp kitchen knives, sharp pocket knives, sharp scissors, sharp garden tools, and sharp throwing axes. There are lots of quickie gadgets out there but none of them comes close to sharpening a knife like this system. It was designed by a guy who sharpens knives for the butchery industry so he knows what he's talking about. The kits are complete, the instructions are excellent and the tools are high quality. If you follow the system of sharpening with the tools in the kit, you will get a knife that is surgically sharp-- I mean really, really sharp. Your kitchen knives will cut through tomatoes like butter. No more poking the tip of your knife into the skin to start tearing open a tomato. You will fall in love again with every old kitchen knife you've got lying around in your drawers; you will start to carry a sharp pocket knife again and use it every day to open boxes and packages. This system requires holding the knife in a little clamp then sharpening it on two stones; you do not use any oils or lubricants so it's not messy. Once the knife is sharp, the kit has a nifty tool to actually test sharpness without cutting up your thumbnails or fingers. The kit also comes with an easy to use steel hone which will restore lightly used edges quickly. I suggest buying a kit with the book and spending maybe an hour or so sharpening your kitchen knives to perfection. You'll be amazed by the results and once you're knives are sharp you can keep them that way for a long time with a couple of quick passes on the steel. This is a lifetime kit. Learning to sharpen a knife is sort of an old world skill these days but once you learn how, you will realize two things: 1). it's not that hard to do and 2). you've been suffering with dull knives for way too long. Get one of these kits and get on the cutting edge!
