After successfully bringing the Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener to market in 2010, Darex has since been actively listening to their customers and has created a new sharpener that best meets the field sharpening needs of sportsmen and heavy knife users - The Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener 2.2.1. This quality tool is made by Darex LLC in Ashland, Ore.; the same people who brought you the Drill Doctor brand of drill bit sharpeners.
New guided field sharpener from the growing line Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpeners.
Legendary knife maker, Ken Onion said of the Guided Field Sharpener, " I am impressed with the clever details like the magnetic plate holders, angle guides, round ceramics and strop, all in a small easy to carry package. It is by far the best manual, portable sharpener I have ever used."
"The Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener ($34.95) comes with two diamond plates (coarse and fine), two ceramic rods (coarse, fine and fish hook groove) and even a leather strop," says Kyle Crawford, Work Sharp product manager. "This tool delivers professional sharpening results with no skill required at a very competitive price."
