Knife Sharpener Of The Day II

Brainstormed by former BLADE® Ad Manager Steve McCowen, who developed it in concert with knifemaker Charles Kain, the Slide Sharp by Columbia River Knife & Tool is an ingenious angle-guide sharpener.

To sharpen, pull the blade through a sharpening guide slot, pressing down lightly with a circular “locomotion” action. Repeat the same action as needed in the opposite slot. Two sharpening guides are included. One has a slight angle for putting an edge on sport, work, tactical and kitchen knives. The second has a steeper angle for heavier tools such as choppers and machetes.
