Default Welcome the Work Sharp - Ken Onion version

put a razor edge on 6 kitchen knifes in 15 min! Even a bread knife...

The Angle guide works great ... key is pull your blades through with light pressure on the belts...

I can shave my face with my chef knifes! O and they have a Strop belt...

129.99 amazon





Anyone want to buy some Jap water stones?

I have the original but also bought the KO version because I wanted to be able to go 15* on a couple. Glad you like it. I think the belts seem expensive though. I go through the fine belts much faster than the rest.

yea 18.00 for replacements is pricey... but the time put into having that sharp of a blade... worth it to me!

how many knifes can you do before the fine belts wear out?

I haven’t really counted. 2-3 dozen? I have only gone through 2 fine belts, I am due a replacement again.

You will only use the 120 for garden tools or a lawn mover blade. On knives I hardly use the X65 (220) so you can probably get by with a 5-pack of the X22 (1000) and a 5-pack the X4 (3000) and that will last you a good long while. After the X22's gett worn, treat it like it's a 2000, and a worn X4 becomes 4000 or higher.

I'm ordering mine tomorrow. Have you seen the videos where an aggregate (jeweler's polish, etc.) is applied to the worn belt for further use?

You can also use J-B Bore Cleaning compound on used belts. J-B is an ultra mild, abrasive oil paste, finer than jewelers’ rouge.

I love learning things that should just be common knowledge. I might have realized it eventually.

I posted about these spring loaded angle guides in the other recent sharpening thread, but using them to keep your knives honed will also help on belt life. Even when touching up with the KO, I use only the 4X and 3 to 5 passes on each side.

Same here, I was alerted to the deal on this site so I got it for $85 or whatever discounted price it was at then. Good stuff.
